I took a break from dual GPU cards and got back into it with the 4870x2...I had two of those in quadfire and they worked very well. I currently have two 5870's and am extremely pleased. Now two GTX 580's are on the way and I can't wait. The difference between two seperate single GPU's vs a single PCB with multiple GPU's is very small so being turned off by one and not the other makes little sense with current drivers.
There are still a ton of issues IMO. Especially with the newest games + app profiles not being done on time. Starcraft II still exhibits some scaling issues.
