I see a gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 in between those links, if it's that motherboard, it supports 2-ways crossfire or sli, with enough space between the slots.
But i recommend going with a single card over two 7850, like a 7950, it's cheaper.

Agreed get the best single card you can afford. You don't run into scaling, added heat, additional power consumption, and in return get more stability.

Yeah, I can afford that without going in the red on my budget, but my friend told me not to get a cooler since im not overclocking, if the processor increases .2ghz from overclock theres really no reason too, but my question is that since I already made up my mind on the crossfire, should I add a cooler???

My friend encouraged crossfiring this and it made a lot of sense too, please correct me if im wrong..

A cooler for what ? Nobody mentioned the cpu cooler or if you need to overclock the cpu.
I still recommend going with a single card than two 7850, if it were two 7950, but two 7850, it's not a good choice, for the price you'll pay for those two, you can get a 7950 or even the 7970.
And you don't need additional coolers for the cards.

^+1 agreed its still a stronger solution to have 1 strong card.

Ok, seems to make sense as well, perhaps just pointing me into the direction of a card that is simular in power of those cards combined, 400 dollar budget on the card though :D

Yes, it was the cheapest 7970 with a good cooling system.

Thanks so much guys, it added an extra $230 to the build, making the overall price $1400 (shipping already included excluding mir)
Totally worth it!!

I'm sure it will be completely worth it when you can do what you want with no problems at all.
