Foxconn P35A compatibility Questions

Hi All,

I'm hoping someone here has the know-how to help me.
I am planning on upgrading in the next month, however a sudden fear has gripped me.

My Upgrade plans are as follows :

Motherboard - Foxconn P35A
Ram - Kingston HyperX PC2-8000(2gig)
CPU - E6750 Core 2 Duo
HDD - Seagate 250gb 16mb
Vid Card - XFX 8800GT XXX
PSU - Coolermaster Extreme Power 650W
Case - Coolermaster RC632S

Now the main reason for this thread is : Will this Foxconn motherboard support both the ram as well as the video card?

I Know its a Crossfire board, but currently there is no normal boards available in SA. So CAN I run a Nvidia based card on a crossfire? I am not interested in running it IN Corssfire(2 cards) just a single card will do.

I have already emailed Foxconn and their reply was very basic "Sorry we havent tested either of these products, so we cannot say". Great help

Anyone that has any idea?

Also am I making a mistake with any of the products I am buying? I havent upgraded in 3 years.

Thanks in Advance.

    How is this for a long range bump?

    I'm curious why you advised against this board, because of stability and/or reliability issues? Do you think this is a solid board? It's 65 bucks AR at newegg right now.

    Also if anyone is aware of stability reliability issues with this board or Foxconn in general I'd like to hear about them.
