I currently have a MSI 7850 which I brought at $250 and I was thinking of doing crossfire with it to increase minimum fps.

Should I get another card for $194 with the Never Settle Bundle? Is it worth it?

I'm sorta new to this whole crossfire thing, and the only concern I really have with it is micro stuttering.
Which I might have experienced micro stuttering before ( Fallout NV ) with a single card and gives me motion sickness. Anyone experienced this in Fallout NV?

Or perhaps I should sell my card and upgrade to something like a 7970 for 1080p?

Thanks!

Hi, I am an ex dual HD 7850 user. Both of my sapphire ones were clocked to 1.2 GHZ, and while they offered more performance than a 7970 GHz (Quite a bit more if overclocked), I had alot of heat and noise issues. Crossfire isn't something you want to go into if you can avoid it. Now I have a 7950 at 1.2 GHZ, and while its performance is a bit less, IMO it was a much better setup than the dual hd 7850.
