You don't need the same exact model to crossfire. You just need a GPU that's from the 7800 series, for example you could crossfire your diamond card with a power color 7850, or a power color 7870.

Thanks for the info. Would it be worth it to crossfire or should I just look at getting a single 7970? Ive heard of some driver issues when doing crossfire setups vs a single card.

definitely just get a single 7970. Crossfire is like the plague. Benchmarks may show that you get higher average FPS with crossfire, but you dont get a smoother gaming experience

Crossfire pro's:

-higher average FPS

Crossfire cons:

- random fps dips
- stuttering
- poor support with certain games where you will be restricted to the performance of a single card
- driver releases that support crossfire in a game much later than the game is released

and i'm saying this from experience not just what i have read about.

Single card FTW
