I looked at this chart http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2012-vga-gpgpu/13-Ba...

and the crossfire HIS Radeon HD 7850 IceQ X - 2 GB GDDR5 is right at the top and will come to just over price of a 7970.. which do you guys think i should get? Is crossfire really worth it

More about : crossfire 7850 7970

7970. always go with one card when you can.

Yep go with a single card because you won't always get the performance increase because some games just don't work well with crossfire

always a single 7970 card is better than two 7950. two GPU system produce more heat, noise than a single GPU system. if you have the money then always choose the one HD7970. :)

Always get the highest performance single graphics card you can afford, then months/years later if you wish to, SLi or Crossfire. For now, as everyone is advising, go 7970.

Back in mid 2011 when I built my PC, I got a 6870 and a year later (mid 2012), I added a second one.
