Windows 7: Dual Screen, Dual DVI GPU vs. 2 Single DVI GPUs

Dual Screen, Dual DVI GPU vs. 2 Single DVI GPUs

Hi, I am building a new computer and I want to go with a dual screen setup. I was wondering if I should go with a GTX 670 2GB GPU or two Sapphire Radeon 7870s. If not specifically these cards, let me know what you think.
Is it better to have a single GPU with dual DVI output or two slightly cheaper GPUs using crossfire?

hi,

The only thing that changes is the graphics performance you will have.
Two Sapphire HD 7870s beat a single GTX 670, but I'm not a Crossfire fan, so I suggest you to get a faster single GPU, because a lot of applications won't use multi-GPU technology.

What you need to do with your new pc?

I plan to use my computer to do a lot of visual design with Photoshop and CAD, and I plan to use it for gaming. I also do web design and run a web server and Minecraft server. I plan to do it all from my new computer.

sorry for the double post...

I think a single fast GPU will be the best choice.
