Yes it is.
It will do crossfire at 8x by 8x lanes though. Not full 16x. It shouldn't hinder performance at all though
Go for this board if you haven't already bought that one

Not really. Most P35's weren't. All intel boards aren't crossfire. Just alot of them are.

Yes, Intel chipsets support crossfire which also confuses me but you can go to AMD.com to see a list of chipsets that support Crossfire.

You can do x8 CrossFire but Robilar did some benchies and found there was virtually no difference between x8 CF and x16 CF.

So get the GA-EP45-UD3P and OC your CPU into outer space.

I would spring for the DFI over the Gigabyte if cost isn't an issue. DFI tends to have a better overall build quality and an incredibly detailed bios. Granted it looks like the UD3P is a step above previous Gigabyte boards.
