I need a motherboard for crossfire.

My build includes:

Intel Core i5 2500k
XFX HD Radeon 6870 2GB GPU which I will eventually upgrade to x2


I will also be overclocking my CPU.

I heard the best ones for crossfire and with the PCIe 8x for each graphics card am I right and 16x for single?

yes make sure the motherboard that you choose is capable of dual X8 PCIe slots. Some motherboards are 1@16X and 1@4X. You will not see a real benefit of running crossfire with one card @16 and one @4.

ASUS has always been my trusted brand of choice but there are plenty of good CF supported motherboards out there, just do some research
