I would also like to know this - I have a 7950 that I am not using and was wondering if it was worth throwing it in one of my rigs to x-fire with a 7970. Currently only using one monitor with each of my rigs and can run everything at max settings without a problem

I've seen it done on XtremeSystems and it didn't seem to be that big of a difference. It was like 1000 points behind a 7970 crossfire IIRC in 3DMark11 Performance, but in gameplay it was almost the same.

Read my posts above, and don't use a screensaver (only allow the monitors to enter sleep).

Guys should sapphire dual X work fine with ym DCII in cfx mode?
Its a lot cheaper than DCII in my region, so that is reason why i am thinking to buy one instead of DCII.
