First, I've read some things that said adding a third card to a CFX setup will add the extra power needed to alleviate the microstutter problems that some experience. However, I know that it's mostly the drivers that cause this issue so I'm assuming that's false?

Second, how does a 7990 compare to CFX/SLI Performance? I have never owned a dual PCB card such as this so I'm not familiar with them at all. I did see that it destroys the Titan and 780 in basically everything while also having 6GB of VRAM and it can be found used for around the same price as a used Titan or new 780. Would this be a better option?

Thanks!
7990 is two 7970s in CF on a single card. No difference in mechanism than two 7970s in CF. It has 3GB of usable VRAM since VRAM does not double/add up in CF/SLI.

I do not have personal experience with either two-way or three-way crossfire, but I think what "the third card alleviating microstutter" means is that the FPS at that point becomes so high that even people who notice microstutter rarely notice it. This is just what I read somewhere on OCN, so dont quote me.
