If I purchased 2 of these, would they be good together in crossfire?

well, it's debatable. IT would probably give you ultra on current gen games and high on next gen. I personally would go with something like one 280 and then go for another one for crossfire

I have this set up (2x MSI r9 270 crossfireX) and it works Awesome. I have no complaints. Got the drivers from AMD and off I went playing my games :)  I'd say its worth it.

Typically most people doesn't recommend crossfire.First of all,all the games doesn't natively support crossfire and second is that it produces a lot of heat but obviously you can compensate that heat but personally I'd not recommend and go with crossfire instead go with a single high-end card like the 280X

While you may be entirely correct that not all the games natively support crossfire, I have not run across that yet. All my games are 2013 and older.
I do have 14 fans (not including the PSU) circulating in a Zalman Z11 case and she runs cool and quiet.
I have to add that I am just getting back into gaming again with my new rig and their are many things I have yet to learn. I built the best system I could possibly afford after researching forums and parts for the past six months and I am happy with what I have accomplished so far. I just wanted to respond to the OP's question that it can be done with excellent results-so far.
For a single card what about the 1150mhz Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Zotac AMP!
