For about the same price of a single 7970 I could get two 7850s and they will get me more FPS in games than a single 7970. However I was wondering if it'd be worth it to get the two over the 7970. I was originally gonna get a single 7850, but I decided to more stuff around to put more money on my gpu. I feel that while the 7850s would give me pretty fps, the 7970 could be coupled with another later down the line and offer better performance than the 7850s anyway.

I would always go for 1 higher end video card over 2 lower end ones. In the long run the 7970 would be better, by time games will be too much for one 7970, you would be able to buy a second one dirt cheap. That's my opinion.

Hm, yeah that's pretty much what I was kind of thinking. If it'd even be worth it down the line. Thank you sir.

No more than $420 for the GPU, about $1600 for everything all together. But, I have everything else decided.

single 7970 so you dont have to go through crossfire problems if any arises. the card itself plays games maxed anyways, why push for even more performance.

Eh, they pretty much preform the same. The 7970 outperforms in one game, the 680 or 670 outperforms in another. I just wanted to try out AMD for once.

Just get the 7970 if you want to try AMD, you will be free of the stress of crossfire, and have the room to upgrade in the future.
