i don't think crossfire is necessarily a wise investment...

The only issues I had were caused by the second card that was DOA. Once I got a working one, I didn't have any problems.

Why not? For $150 I can get performance equivalent to 5970.

-Expensive
-More heat per card
-More power draw=higher electric bill
-Scaling issues
-Terrible ATI drivers
-Incompatibility in games
-Microstutter (big issue)
-Less space in case
-Hinderance of PCI slot

For those reasons I will not crossfire.
