  1. Crossfire still has major issues such as poor DX9 performance.

    Since you mention a GTX770 go HERE and read my discussion:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1866111/280x-770.html

    I'm currently recommending the MSI GTX770 TF, or the Asus DC2U version, or a similarly clocked EVGA.

    Ok, Thanks but doesn;t bf4 run on dx 11 so doesn't it not matter?
  3. Crossfire has no problems in Battlefield 4. The 7990 is essentially the HD 7970 in Crossfire and its blazing fast in the game.

    Benchmarks of BF4 release with latest drivers:

    All are at stock settings, AMD cards scale very well when overclocked :)

    Im planning to record gameplay and i hear that nvidia shadowplay is really good! do you think i should go for the evga gtx 770 2gb or the sexy looking R9 280X double dissipation?
