I loved reading about the Amd cookies thanks bro, To be honest with you guys the last time I ran Crossfire I had a pair of Radeon 6970s so it has been a while- Now if I recall correctly almost all my games ran just fine with cf with the exception of only a handful that did not support it such as Fsx and a few other flight-sim based games anyway.....I did however have a problem I was never able to resolve,once I would launch a game my 2nd card would drop its fan profile to 20% or idol and I would crash within a few minutes of gameplay on account of heat,once I end the game the 2nd card would ramp-up to 90% fan-speed!It was really annoying to say the least! Once I walked away from cf I started to enjoy my games alot more, I understand why so many people would say just get 1 high-end gpu and call it a day.I would still consider using it but.....If problems like this still persist I would perfer to single-gpu solution. Scaling is another touchy subject for me! The best I have seen was AVP which tops-out around 80%-85% which is Awsome but other games not so much-Metro for example gets %50 cf/sli scaling that is still ok but come-on! If you buy a Turbo for your car do you want the xtra 200 Hp sometimes or all the time/wtf! You know?
