You guys who keep complaining about Crossfire, do any of you actually own a 4-series setup with it? I've tested around 30 different games in Crossfire, and every one of them but two scaled (Two Worlds, Witcher,) and Witcher has been fixed now.

The 280 is a fine card, but 4-series Crossfire deserves some merit. It's practically transparent to the user. It's very dependable, which is why you see the 4870X2 running away from the 280 in most benchmarks.

I've owned an 8800 Ultra, then an HD4870 and now Crossfire. And I'd say give me Crossfire over anything.
