Not sure if it is hard to crossfire or not, but I think all 7770 should have standard abilities of crossfiring (just my thoughts). But even that it is in fact easy to crossfire, I would still advise against it. I would advise getting a single but faster card. In this way, you won't really have to deal with crossfire problem (which is really annoying for people who can't fix it up). And Plus, you can crossfire it a little later. Since 7770's are coming onto the $125 marks (maybe with some MIRs, but standard ones doesn't), crossfire 7770 would cost $250. At that price you can get a much better single configuration card, which is the 7870.

7770 CF ~= 7870 in gaming performance. I recommend the 7870 over the 7770s because of the reasons that you stated and also because many 7870s can be found much cheaper than $250 or so, but still, two reference 7770s and two reference 7870s generally have similar performance.
