there are boards that have dual slot (AGP and PCI-e) but not in SLI and not for Core 2 Duo...

You will have to decide what you want in video... (go for PCI-e)

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70 LUX rgb
NZXT Source 530 / i7-8700K / Corsair H100i v2 / ASRock Z370 Taichi
SM951 M2 256GB / 850 evo 1TB / Seagate 2TB / WD 2TB
2x16GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 / evga Classified GTX 980 ti / Seasonic M12II 850W

ok pcix 1x has the same speed as standard pci, and pcix 16 is 16 times faster than standard pci same with agp, 4x would be 4x faster than pci, and 8x would be 8x faster than pci.

EDIT: y dont you just get a c2d mobo, with sli, and a few pci slots, and get a good pci card. i got this card and its great, cheap, and has enough power to play some decent games on low settings(has enough power to compare to a 5500 on stock, or a 6200 when oc'ed, which mine is)

setting gpu mem
stock 275 400
oc 390 493

thats as far as i can get, or ittl start getting all weird on me
Listen to my music! and random/funny videos XD
