Create Products with an attribute that has many options and prices

I have about 6-10 products that will have two attributes for a customer to choose options for:  Qty (Box of 6 or Box of 12) and Size.  I have read tutorials about a configurable product but my dilemma is that for the size attribute...I have about 80+ sizes and each size comes in two box quantities and all combinations of Qty and Size will have a separate price.  On the front-end this would be a product page with one description and picture and a drop-down box to choose the box size and a drop-down to choose from the 80 sizes all with the corresponding price.  Example:

Product A

Box of 6 - 10 x 10 x 1 = 0.00
Box of 12 - 10 x 10 x 1 = 0.01

Box of 6 - 10 x 12 x 1 = 1.00
Box of 12 - 10 x 12 x 1 = 1.01

Repeat 80 times!!!  This seems like a lot of combinations and a lot of time.  My questions are: Is this possible and what would be the most simple way to achieve this?

Another situation I will have is a product that comes in singles meaning the traditional Qty box where the customer enters how many they want will be fine; but I still have about 40 sizes.  I could probably get away with keeping all 40 sizes the same price.  Would I treat these two scenarios the same as far as set-up?  Would I need two separate attributes to split the 40 sizes from the original 80 sizes?

Thanks in advance for your time!
