Words of wisdom.

1 + 1 does not equal 1.

tl;dr Crossfire (and SLI, from what I hear) can be a pain.

7990 all the way

Wow, this is the most support for the 7990 that I've seen. I just started to get a little bit fidgety about my choice due to all of the negativity that has been heaped on CF and the 7990 in particular. However, it seems that a lot of that was pre-13.8. I suppose my best bet is to go ahead and give it a try, hope that it doesn't have the coil whine issue, and just sell it/trade it off if I don't like it. Thanks to all for your input and help in keeping my head on straight. tongue.gif

I'd put a 7990 in that case, too.
Or the rumoured GTX 790, which is, obviously, rumoured and not reality.
