Hi GibbyGeek :D
Post your system specs and what you intend using the computer for,
Sometimes a single card can out perform Sli or Crossfire setups you
need to allow for the amount of Ram, the Cpu, psu and how old the
computer is for example.

Here you go the pros and cons http://www.tomshardw...13-15-5770-5850
The psu is good to go with crossfire and I think thats what I would go for.
