My System Specs

Note: this is my PERSONAL opinion. My professional opinion is quite different...

Others infer that a single card solution is almost always a better idea in order to avoid driver issues, game compatibility, and other bugs. To those people this card would be far more than a marketing gimmick.

As always there are two sides to the story, but I am torn between them.
