What is the best video card to use in 2 way Sli/crossfire for around $400? I am interested in AMD and Nvidia cards. I want a configuration that will run better then the $400 Radeon R9 290. If this is not possible then I will just use the Radeon R9 290.

Go for the R9 290 there will then be no issues with crossfire support or frame pacing.

Basically I have around $400 to spend on a graphics card so I could go for one $400 or 2 $200 cards.

Problem with 2 cards is that when you need to upgrade you start from scratch again. With 1 stronger card, when you need more performance you can get another same card and you can sli/crossfire them. Go with the R9 290.
