    One, then you can add another later on although if you're building for the now then yes two card for the same price of the one expensive one would be better but likely can't add more.

    It's best to get the most powerful single GPU you can rather than two mid-ranges.

    Yeah Adham, like criss said a single higher end gpu will be better than 2. X-fire can cause problems playing some games and other stuff. Ask Criss....

    oh thanks for the answers, i just came out with that idea because i was thinking it might be the same as RAMS with dual channel, thanks for answers again!

    Yep. For example, one 7970 is better than two 7850's or even 7870's. Less driver related issues and the potential for a huge upgrade down the road when another strong card can be purchased.

    On the flip side though.... say for W/C. With the up-tempo releases of bigger and better cards coming out, how does does that play into account when someone who wanted to do water cooling. Some manufacturers take a while to come up with gpu coolers that will fit non reference cards.

    For example - I can afford two 7950s matching that do have gpu blocks.

    or do I just get a 7970 GHz knowing that there's not a gpu block for it yet

    In your case, I would say get the 7950's, or better yet two GTX 670's. either way you will have all the GPU performance you will need for at least two years.

    I thought the 670s didn't overclock as well as 7950s or 7970s? And what I mean by that is that don't the 6XX series have locked voltages? Also, I'm waiting for some reviews on the LG IPS 237L-BN and the LG IPS 277L-BN monitors. Depending on the prices and reviews (i'm either going dual monitors 277L <nvidia cards> or go eyefinity w/3 237L and <AMD cards>).

    I've never had any problems with crossfire? (Except when the bridge wasn't in all the way but I'm pretty sure Nvidia would have the same issue XD) >.> And my 6950s will beat a 7970, just saying...

    My brother runs BF3 on ultra, 1680x1050 with his HD 6970 and gets mid 60's to high 90's frame rates. I, too run my two HD 6850's at the exact same settings and get frame rate drops down to 21 and average of around 50. So this should clear up the debate. Yes, crossfire runs good on most games.. but there are some that just

    I play BF3 on ultra settings with my 6950s and get 60 FPS all day... I think it really depends on the company and model you chose.

    Your HD 6950's are much higher performance than my HD 6850's though. Not only that but you can unlock them. What resolution do you play at? You get 60 FPS in crossfire? HBAO? 2xAA?

    If your going to by a new card, then buy from EVGA, there's a lot of good reasons why, including their 90 day setup program. You can use the card, for up to 90 days, then trade it in on either a newer card, or step up from a GTX660 to a GTCX670 or 680, and they will apply the full price you paid for the first card, [ less shipping ] towards the card your stepping up to.

    EVGA GPU's come with a limited lifetime warranty, and they do have one of the best support teams around, also fast RMAs
