Now you see why there's a bit of hate towards CFX. I really can't say that I hate it. I've used it every since my Sli 280's, quad sli 295's, CFX 5870's, Tri Sli 480's, and now 7970, and another on order. I've set up a bunch of people in Eyefinity and Surround. On 3 screens is when you notice the micro stutter a lot more. 1 screen, you probably don't notice it or you don't understand what it is.
I've played 105hrs of MW3 on my Tri Sli 480's, I've tried everything to smooth out the game. Nothing helped, but I still played. Now with this 7970 running the same settings and running 5860x1080(bezel correction) it's butter smooth. No hate on either end, but I can say it is a whole new world of how smooth a game can play.
My friend that live 5min away didn't believe me either. He came over and in 10mins he asked how much he could sell his 6950's for. If you put the same game on both setups side by side, it's night and day.
I am going to try 2 7970's because I do like power and running everything locked at 60fps, but I'm so close to having the performance I'm looking for and able to play the games I do in Eyefinity with no issues at all. I have a water block coming in tomorrow and will see how that works out. If I can get this card to 1200/1600, that's all I'll need for now and will probably settle.
