SLI supported motherboards and GPU's usually comes with a SLI bridge.
I will say yes to that you can run 2 of those cards in SLI sense they are both low/mid end gaming cards.
however i dont think the power efficiency are gonna be great.

PC part picker also says it doesn't support SLI. guess you are out of luck.

well actually, correct me if im wrong but that. so you already have one video card right? with this motherboard?
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

that motherboard only has pciexpress 2.0 and that video card is 3.0. i didnt know that that would work.

PCI-E 3.0 is perfectly backwards compatible with 2.0
3.0 is only really stretching it's legs when SLI'ing (this need to be a real word) 2 or more very high end cards.
