I currently have a GTX 960 2GD5 Card and a MSI Z170A PC MATE Motherboard

I have an option to get a 2nd GTX 960 for fairly cheap.
And was curious if its possible to get SLI to work with it, even though my MB says its for Crossfire.

The product page says SLI is supported. https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/z170a-gaming-m7.html

What other option do you have instead of 2xGTX 960? If you're looking for performance similar to the 960 SLI, look for a used GTX 980/1070 or new 1650 Super/1660.

The GTX 960 in SLI will only reach up to about a GTX 980 in performance assuming the game supports SLI and is programmed well enough to take advantage of more than one card. You will be limited to whatever total vram is on both cards and if one has 2GB and the other has 4GB you will be limited to 2GB vram. They will also be dumping out a lot heat into the case and require more power than the GTX 1070.
