My question is people with the latest gen of cards in Crossfire, how is the smoothness actually in-game? With latest drivers and all the frame pacing etc. Is it comparable now to SLI is what I'm asking. The story goes, I sold one 780, originally to just get a stock cooled card to replace one ACX because of heat probs. With the season change and added fan filters the melting process had ensured. But now I'm currently waiting to see R9 290x benchmarks/FCAT before I make a decision. May go ATI for the first time in several years. Not really sure If I need PCIe 3.0 for 290x Crossfire now either :infinity: hope not.
