Yes it has 2 pci-e slot for CF at x8 not x16. And yes on the dual get PhenomII x2.

If you get it make sure you get a high wattage psu, the board needs 300W by itself to run.
Also it does not like 1600Mhz Ram very well, I got my 1600 Mhz mushkin to run at 1395Mhz with tighter settings and it is just as good if not better this way.
Managed to overclock 965 C3 to 4.1 ghz 1.55V and CPU-NB 2.7GHZ 1.3875V 1hour linpack stable.
Has good audio and good network chips. Get it it is really good but a little sensitive with the settings you use it with. Make sure you enable ACPI XSDT if you are using a 64 bit system or it will do all kinds of strange things.
Hope this helps, anoobilis
edit: you dont care about the 8x/8x crossfire, get crossfire-on-a-pcb like the amd 5970 or 5950 and use the other PCIe slot for something else, i believe they both run at 16x single mode - there are no other AM3 matx boards with 2 pcie slots out there, only some lower quiality ones but am2+
