Help in determining bottleneck (if its there)

Hey,

I've recently built a light-moderate gaming PC and was looking to step it up a notch by buying another Radeon 6770 and crossfiring it.
However, I contacted ASRock and AMD for assistance and they both claim that my current hardware will result in a bottleneck, though they both go at it in different areas. AMD says that my MOBO will cause the limitations, while ASRock says that my i5 2500k will.

I really don't know what to believe (even if there will be a bottleneck or not), or what my options are at this point.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Specs:
asrock z68 extreme 3 gen 3 MOBO , intel i5 2500k, 8 gb ddr3 1600 RAM, 750 watt PSU, 250GB WB caviar Blue, 1TB seagate barracutta, Radeon 6770
