Doesn't matter if it's SLI / CrossFire, what Video Card / GPU configuration do you folks run in your rigs?

My personal preference is 1 Video Card / 1 GPU, getting 1 powerful card is less likely to give you driver issues vs running a multi Video Card / GPU.

SLI / CrossFire has always been more problematic than single Video Card / GPU configurations.

Please post your Video Card / GPU setup if possible, I'm curious as to what everybody has.

Aren't Video Cards and GPUs the same thing?

GPU = Graphics Processing Unit.
Video/Graphics Card = Video/Graphics Daughterboard.

going for 2/2 probably to see how the crossfire with no bridge works.

I used to have a 4870x2 (2 GPU on 1 card).

But the amount of heat, power, and often problems getting games to use both GPUs completely turned me off multi-GPU systems forever.

I will be a single GPU person forever now most likely.
