Maybe I'll try it out with just the single 670 and see how it is. I really want to add a second but my motherboard only supports Xfire. I am not sure if I can be bothered to buy a new motherboard right now. I did consider Xfire 7950's or 7970's but, from what I have heard, Xfire doesn't seem worth the hassle.

oh a single 670 will make you happy. And if your motherboard is not SLI compatible than maybe you can get 780 when it comes out in maybe like 6 months. If you want stable 60 fps on BF3 with your current GPU than maybe you might turn on a feature or 2. 

 

Last but not least we have few Xfire users on the club and I believe they are happy with their setups. I also heard (never used) that xfire have issues with drivers but maybe they are fixed now.

 

P.S. 

 

Do you have the Asus p8z68v-le edition?

There's an SLI "hack" that's available to make SLI available on crossfire x branded boards. I did this on my ASUS M4A89GTD to put in my two 8800GTS' in, worked without a flaw. The community behind it releases updates frequently.

^This should get you started if your so inclined. Check the OP's sig for HyperSLI 9.0, that post is something new they/he's been creating

^Basic instructions you should follow with the 9.0 exe from the first link.

I'm using 8. I haven't noticed any decrease in performance. If anything it is more stable (for me at least). I just don't like the metro start. I just stay in desktop mode and have all my common programs on the task bar.

My first attempt at 1440p encoding and uploading to Youtube -

And hints and/or tips on better rendering settings would be appreciated. Recorded using MSI Afterburner, MJPEG at full frame 100% quality and rendered in Sony Vegas 12.

Surprised myself using 3 x 1440p for desktop/media production to just my ACD for world of tanks for a night. Big change but I can see what people are on about with 1600P and the extra vertical real estate after experiencing having the extra room

I used that as a base. I have tweaked it here and there for better results, but then seem to be some good settings for YouTube.
