I want to get this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and this processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I want to hook up my two HD 7950's in crossfire with this mobo. Will it work? And will the cpu bottleneck them? I will be water cooling the two cards as well. Thanks!

Yes an APU will sure as hell bottleneck 2 GPUs, why are you doing ti this way? Why do you want Xfire?

Its pointless getting an APU if you are gonna use discrete graphics.

Are you sure it would bottleneck? I mean it's six cores.

Are you trolling ?...it's a low budget all-in one quad-core even the x4 965 black will beat that cpu, now imagine a intel i5-3570k...
Its a really no brainer...

I was being nice. lol

Its only 4 cores. And that does not mean it will not bottleneck. You ned individual fast cores too.

In my opinion not worth the extra $, the i5 still beats that cpu in gaming apps.
