Last I heard AMD was looking at a July release to the general public on the driver fix for the Crossfire issue.

@OP; If you can hold off on the driver fix for CF, then buy a second 7970. If that isn't the case and you need a fix now, I would buy a couple 770's, although be warned, at 1440P there are a few games where you will hit a 2GB VRAM limit with the Nvidia offerings. Which is a reason I run AMD, that extra GB has been useful in certain games.

If you actually read what I wrote, you would see that I did state they are working on it. Regardless of this fact, I also stated that if he thinks it is worth the wait for the driver fix that is also an option. Either way, if he doesn't want to wait then this is not really an option; which is why a GTX 780 is the best available choice currently.

Only reason I ask is because then I'll buy a 780 soon and SLI it eventually. So my purchase of the 780 depends on how SLI is and how it will improve.

Thanks!

nVidia SLI is pretty good, they don't suffer from Microstutter or Frame Latency issues really at all. It's just not seen nearly as much with SLI setups - which is why it's insignificant; sure there is a little bit but not enough to make someone change their minds over SLI like with Crossfire. You can look at the graphs and see the GTX 690 which is SLI, and notice there is not Frame Latency or little to none. I wouldn't be worried about going SLI at all, it's pretty solid and the scaling is really nice too.

My comment was more directed towards your "If they release it", as your post was casting a shadow over AMD and its efforts to resolve an issue.

Casting a shadow? How? I said they are working on a driver fix, but who knows they they plan on releasing it. I never said they aren't releasing it or not trying to work on fixing the problems. lol.
