A couple of days ago I asked about the specs of my first build, I've now hit another speed bump. If I want to use Crossfire Pro with two Firepro cards from AMD would I need a specific motherboard?

I only ask because AMD are very confusing on their website, this is all I could find:
http://www.amd.com/uk/Documents/ATI_CrossFire_Pro%20_DS...
and it doesn't really help me. If it's any help the board I will be getting is an asus sabertooth 990FX r2.0 to allow overclocking of my cpu

every mobo with 2 PCI-e 2.0x16 slots support crossfirex, but i´m not sure about crossfire pro. but what graphics card are you going to get? because the best CPU you can have with that MOBO is a fx-8350 and since the 9000 serie isn´t out yet it hink if you´re going to have 2 professional graphics cards a 8350 will bottleneck.

Any motherboard that will support Crossfire, in general, will support Crossfire Pro. The "Pro" part really just refers to Crossfire enabled FireXXX GPUs. Note, not all professional grade, FireXXX, GPUs support Crossfire Pro.

I'm gonna get a W5000, cos it's cheap and looking at benchmarks it performs really well at both CAD software and gaming

So if I buy the sabertooth and the Firepro W5000 I will be able to crossfire it if I need/want to? If the power supply is good enough obviously

i dont think a fx 8350 will bottleneck 2 w5000 if you overclock it, 2 w9000 willl defnetly bottleneck so thats why i asked
