Will two graphics cards work in crossfire on Asus F2A85-M PRO Mobo?

Hello there.. This is Morgan Freeman and I have a question you ask you young hipsters...I currently own a F2A85-M Pro Mobo and I have a 7870 in it already I would like to know if I could add another 7870 for crossfire? I have a A10-5800k Processor and it says it has Crossfirex Support and the motherboard says it has Quad Crossfirex Support but I am not sure if it means dual graphics with the processor or actual crossfire with 2 discrete G cards. I would also like to know if My processor will be bottlenecking with 2 graphics cards. Thanks

    The motherboard does support crossfire. However, while playing CPU intensive games your CPU will be the bottleneck and you will most likely not notice a performance gain from crossfiring. You may even have a performance hit.

    Is there anywhere online where I can see benchmarks with that build? and what if I overclock the processor would it still bottleneck? Thanks

    Overclocking the processor would definitely help with the performance of the system.

    Your CPU is about the same as the CPU recommended her for basic gaming. I wish I had more benchmarks for you but they are out there online.
