Well after 30mins on the phone with the tech guys at the store and arguing with them over specs ( i love customer service people who pretend tech support) I've decided to say Screw it and go buy the maximus tonight, sigh little more board than I need, but since I can only get store credit and thats the only board they have that will fully support Crossfire, Thats what i'll end up with
Thanks for the help guys, I'll post more tonight when its installed

Yea C2Q + CF + P35 = C2QCFP35, which is more commonly known as "epic phail".

Its one of the disadvantages of using a technology on a system that isn't from the parent company. To get full 16x/16x you're looking at over 200 for intel, but AMD's X3200 chipset does it for AMD processors for less than the cost of a P5K!

The 16x/4x thing was a huge mistake on intel's part, 8x/8x, on anything but a 3870x2 would perform the exact same as a 16x/16x.
