Please some feedback on either site is greatly appreciated!
It depends on how diligent you are. If you are constantly watching the coins and switching between them to mine the most profitable, then mining individual coins will probably be more profitable, but I don't have the time for that, so a multipool works well for me. It saves me the time and effort of trading for BTC.

I will. So far no hiccups, but my single 200mm rad is struggling with keeping two 290's cool, so I need to setup an external cooler for it sometime today. Luckily I have radiators just laying around not being used.

Or better yet how to get guiminer to work right
For Guiminer I do not use any of the presets. Here are my settings for my cards at stock.
