X58/LGA 1366 Motherboards don't matter when it comes to Crossfire/Sli. So yes, that Motherboard does to Crossfire/crossfirex.

All X58 motherboards support Crossfire but not all of them support SLI.

AMD boards don't support SLI unless they use an nVidia chipset. Or you perform a simple hack to enable it.

Half right. All boards w/ sufficient PCIe slots support Crossfire. Nvidia is greedy so only their approved boards support SLI.

Wrong also. nVidia chipsets do not support Crossfire period. Only Intel and AMD chipsets do.
