If you have heat problems thats your own damn fault, and SLi is pretty damn stable, I haven't had any trouble except with a annoying light flickering bug in metro:LL but that was easy to fix.

55-60C max and no instability. Maybe try it before you pull info out of your ass. Or don't buy *****y gpus that run hot.

SLI isn't worth it imo.

The cost/benefit isn't there and it creates many annoying issues in many different circumstances.

I had crossfire for a a year or so and it only caused me issues on a few games none of which were hard to resolve.

Really liked it whilst I had it but it caused the ambient temps in my case to rise a fair amount, I'd definitely consider doing it again though if the opportunity arose.

Single GPU. CF/Sli are so dependant on AMD/Nvidia not screwing up with drivers

Seeing how early AMD stopped supporting the HD2000-4000 series, I'd be wary going Crossfire.

I have two HD5850s in crossfire right now and can say I probably wouldn't do multiple GPUs again. You don't get that much benefit for the cost, and there are some strange compatibility issues in a lot of games.

Single GPU's get the job done too sooo... I usually stick with single granted that I have never actually tried dual.
