This way you avoid any SLI/Xfire problems, and if you have your rig for a while you get the option of upgrading to SLI/Crossfire on the more powerful card down the road (if it becomes required....or wanted). The exception to this often being the flagship card in a lineup that you pay a premium for (and is often a dual GPU single card, which can get you back into some scaling issues).
