That motherboard is Crossfire, not SLI.  See here.

can anyone me a motherboard just like that one but sli instead of crossfire im going to be using a geforece gtx 285 vid card...amd phenom ii x4 964 black processor.

its like every single one on newegg that fits those and has 16g of ram is crossfire (well one did but it only had 2 slots i need one with 3 so i can have dual monitors with both running at full)

The only motherboard I found that matches what you need is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130236 

Four memory slots, so you can easily put in 16 GB of RAM (although you will probably only EVER need half as much), and it has triple SLI.

Hope this helped.

It's hard to mix an amd processor with nvidia, because amd owns ati.  Just make sure to read the reviews on newegg for that board...Primarily the cons and the lowest reviews, to fully understand the board and what you will run into with the build.
