You cannot with that motherboard. The last PCIe x16 slot is wired for x4. NVIDIA requires 8x as a minimum regardless of generation.

Well no. SLI came first before Crossfire. Crossfire is AMD's version of SLI technically. NVIDIA didn't even create SLI.

Did 3DFX create SLI?

They were the first to implement it, and then NVIDIA bought them out, redesigning it and giving it a different name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3dfx_Interactive#SLI

I like the Asus Z170-A however I'm basing it on reputation and looks, I haven't owned the Z170 platform

Gigabyte's gaming series is quite good and looks cool too. As for overclocking, if you were asking about the CPU you can't because your CPU is locked. You can overclock your 970s but that doesn't depend on the motherboard.
