. How is crossfire at this point? Buggy? Do alot of games support it at this stage.
I had a little trouble with crossfire at the start but that is fixed. Divers for them are buggy right now but that will get better. The games I play BF3, DIRT2 and 3, Black ops RE5 Run fine with crossfire. Bf3 is what I am playing the most atm and it is running really nice. If I run ultra settings msaa x4 I am averge 70 fps and up from there if I run it on auto I am seeing 100+ fps.
Hard to say if I would recommend them over 7970 or the 680 but I like what I got. For a crossfire setup the heat factor is great, the only that is warm in my system is the nb, it went up about 4 dregees
. Its hot here today and about 78f in the house right now and I am idling at 29c, and loads at 60-65 The cards have good performance power though, I am not dissapointed at all. When there is a better driver and not the hotfix one for the 7800's I think these will truly rock.
