Will this motherboard

EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard

work well for running 2 of these 6950s in Crossfire?

HIS IceQ X Turbo H695QNT2G2M Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

my goal is a rig that can run BF3 on Ultra settings with getting 60fps or greater.
1920 by 1080 screen res.

Well I have a Phenom ii x4 965 @3.8ghz and while the 930 is much faster it seemed that it liked really fast CPU's.When I was asking around on the BF3 Alpha forums people with 2500k's were maxing out at 70%.

It shouldn't be that difficult to get a higher clock.Just get a good aftermarket heatsink and you should be able to get to 3.6ghz or 3.8ghz.That's really all you should need.
