Smile Upgrade PC

I was thinking of upgrading my old pc and I found out about an ASUS motherboard, P5E-V HDMI(Intel G35 Express chipset). Will this motherboard be able to support crossfire?

What CPU do you have? Are you sure it's an LGA775 socket?

You onlyneed to spend about a quarter of that to get a decent C2D. And that board will support the 45nms.
I would recommend the E8400 or the E6750.
