Knowing ATI, their drivers and CCC...don't think it's worth it. SLI scales and runs better, and you can always create new profile for your new game which for the most part gives you nice boost.
The ATI bad drivers argument is REPEATED by many who never had the ATI product and it's more about the past.
Now ATI has new drivers at least every month and from the real users there is no more complains than on the NVIDIA drivers.
