What's the problem with CF? Issues such as scaling, tearing etc are been resolved in new drivers. Besides, 7950 CF > single 7970 and is also more future proof. If budget is the problem, then you can also go for 7870 CF of 660 CF.

no man CF are never future proof options .... lets take that if u have a single powerful card let it be a 7970 ok ....and your friend is having a 7950 in CF and yes 7950 cf > single 7970 so at that time your friend is getting benifit of few frames but as future proofing is concerned ..... to beat your friend u add one more 7970 card and CF it after a year and now ur friend has no option to inscrease performance my grafix so as future proofing is concerned a single powerful card are the only way to go ..... :p

Hmmm...

I had the exact notion thats why I went with 7970.If I had the money I would definitely have gone with 7970/7950 xfire.

You guys have forgotten abt the FX 8350 . Nowadays games have started to use more cores and are core hungry. OP you can go with 8350 and save some money .
AMD FX 8350
ASUS M5A99X Pro R2
Rest all same

This is what going in my mind..
MSI Z77 Mpower
Intel 3570k
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB x 2 1600Mhz
Corsair Hydro Series H100
now confused between 7950 cf , 7970 , asus gtx 670 direct cool
 
Guys At this budget single card solution would be best. Don't sacrifice other components for it. :|
correct @!

yes , but if u consider future proofing then how will CF help ????? :facepalm:
 
^ it will help to run games at better settings for a longer time span as compared to a single card. 7950cf >> single 7970. And it's coming in budget too. Still, if you want a single card solution, then get a 7970 with the biggest vram possible.
