2 medium graphics cards or 1 beastly one?

What do you guys think?

I'm not specifying details on purpose, just want a theoretical discussion going.

1 beastly one obviously

You lose a lot in dollar:power ratios when going SLI/Crossfire. The only exception to this rule is the Titan which just throws all that logic out the window with just plain bad dollar:power statistics.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

1 beastly

Going with 2 now doesn't leave much room for upgrades since multicard setups with more than 2 cards suffer from severe diminishing returns, so once the cards reach the end of their lives you're kinda stuck.

1 Beastly. Can we stop this crap about 2 mid-tier cards being better than 1 top of the line card?

Who said anything about that? I think you're going crazy.

Definitely beastly.

Unless we're talking a $900 card like the titan vs 2 $300 ones (760s) or something.
