What is the best video card to use in 2 way Sli/crossfire for around $400?

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.

  1. Go for the R9 290 there will then be no issues with crossfire support or frame pacing.
  2. Go to Toms Hardware and read the monthly article "Best Video Cards for the Money"

    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.
