there are some great sites for video cards like
http://www.tomshardware.com/
and
http://www.gpureview.com

but i want to compare some motherboards side by side is there any site like that?
also the manufactures don't want to tell me if they support CrossFireX or SLI where would i find that information?

Tom's hardware has reorganized their website and it's hard to find things there now. However, they continue to have motherboard comparison articles or "roundups". These are usually done by chipset, so take a look at this page where you can see mobos with Intel X48, X38, and nForce:

For CrossFireX or SLI support, that's usually something the manufacturer's love to brag about. However, if it's not readily obvious there, try a Google or Yahoo shopping search because the retailers often list these features when they are available.

It does seem as if there are fewer motherboards that support Nvidia SLI. Check their website for certified components:

At Newegg you can sort motherboards by chipset type -- most nForce boards are SLI ready. Here's a link where I chose Intel motherboards with an Nvidia nForce 700 chipset. Look for "SLI" in the name of the board to be sure:
