Does anyone here use Crossfire?
I have read a lot about SLI but I know little about Crossfire.

Is it stable?
Any issues around it I should know about?

I'm still not a fan of either Crossfire or SLI, just doesn't seem to be enough of a performance gain to justify it UNLESS you already have one card, want to buy another the same, AND the application/game(s) you want it for are known to work well with SLI/Crossfire. Plenty of games still don't care for this sort of setup and can see little or no improvement, so for a lot of people, buying a single, higher-end card is better than buying 2 mid-range cards, imho.

Yea, crossfire isn't worth it. Better to get 1 powerful card then upgrade later..

Hydra looks good though..
