I want to hear from people that are running X580/3200 Crossfire set ups.

What is crossfire like?
When you went from one card to crossfire how big of a difference did it make?
What do you like about crossfire?
What don't you like about crossfire?
How much did it increase your 3D Mark score?
Are there any popular mainstream games that crossfire does not work well?
What was the biggest increase that you saw?

Don''t know about crossfire but if you are looking for an x580 chipset board the asus i have is pretty freaking sweet. I will be getting it eventually but from what i have seen you can get a decrease in some games due to lack of support but in other games ie Company of heroes you can get more than a 100% increase. So it is worth it all in all i think cause if you do lose framerate you can just turn 1 card off for a while and then when you need it turn it right back on.

I dunno. That is kind of a turn off getting lower frame rates with 2 cards as opposed to 1. I kind of want to go crossfire because it is cheaper, but I may just spend an extra $100 and get a HD2950Pro when it comes out later this year.

the rule of thumb is that 1 expensive single card will out perform 2 cheaper cards
