I was willing to buy two XFX 280x because I found them at a good price compared to others. I'm willing to buy two of them to get them on Crossfire. However, I'm reading a lot of issues with regards to the bridge not being long enough. Do you think I should get the same issue if I try to Crossfire them on an Asus P6t? Thank you!

You could just buy a longer crossfire bridge and you'll be fine :)

Is the one given by Asus good enough?

How long is it? from what i read, the standard 100mm (10cm) bridge is too short. You'll need about 110mm or better yet 120mm

You have already boght them?

You would be better off getting a 290x vs buying two 280x cards.

I've read that Crossfire 280x are much better than 290x. Also ifreestylin - is there really a 12cm one - cos I can't seem to find one on eBay

Yes I saw it :)  . I'll try to get a 10cm or 11 cm crossfire bridge from somewhere after I purchase the cards so that I can use it to Crossfire the two cards.
