I'll get back to you with some benchmarks.
You mean 3GB worth of ram. Crossfire mirrors and doesn't add ram.
Now that I did not know. However, I do honestly believe that the 7950 is the better card (this coming from a gtx 670 owner) and would highly recommend it.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure that there aren't many games around that will max out 3 gigs of vram (the only one that I know of is Skyrim heavily modded and maybe Crysis 3), so you should be fine.
Edit: Also, the crossfire issues in Crysis 3 only exist because it's a very young game. Give AMD some time and I'm sure they'll fix it up.
Also, Crossfire scales just as well as SLI these days in most cases.
Edit Edit: I just noticed that you're paying about a hundred dollars more for two 7950s than I payed for my single 670. Australian prices suck!
