If a couple Youtube videos have you that scared versus the many folks (myself included) who aren't experiencing any issues like this, then buy something else. It's no skin off anyone's rear end what you choose to do with your money or not. We can only speak from what we personally have experienced. If it would make you feel more comfortable going with a GTX 285 SLI setup or a Radeon 4870 x2 Crossfire, then by all means do it.
