Seriously, saying CFX has problems is like saying Nvidia SLI has no problems.
Really?! You don't have much problems with current drivers.

lol what? Obviously nvidia isn't perfect I never said that. But from personal experience having owned both cfx and sli setups I can honestly say that AMD doesn't have a clue what they are doing with multi-gpu. It took almost a year for a proper cfx driver for metro 2033, a pretty graphically intensive game where you would want the extra gpu power, no? I remember reading 6 months after Skyrim released crossfire still didn't work. Also you need to read The Tech Report's article on frame-times. AMD is pathetically bad compared to Nvidia in this department. Nvidia consistenly has better drivers and sli profiles are released much faster, and they have a much smoother gaming experience. For anyone to actually recommend AMD crossfire is just irresponsible. Do some research.

Two HD 7970s are better than two GTX 680s in most situations, if you look at the reviews carefully you'll see while a single GTX 680 may edge the HD 7970 consistently in most games, having two changes the situation completely. Crossfire scales very well with the 7970s compared to the GTX 680s in SLI. Not a fanboy but just my observation, I have neither cards so no personal experience here but it's consistent with what I've been seeing so far.

So, i don't have much experience with CFX either but SLi really drove me up the wall you betch.
