Crossfire does work in Seven.

Download and install Driver Sweeper:
Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

1. Uninstall ATI Catalyst install manager in control panel>uninstall programs. It will ask you if want to restart.

2. Restart in safe mode and run Driver Sweeper as admin. Analyze and clean all ATI entries. (make sure you select ATI only)

3. Reboot normally and install the latest catlyst drivers. Reboot.

If crossfire is still causing crashes:

Repeat steps 1 and 2

After running Driver Sweeper in safe mode, shut down and physically remove one card. Go to step 3..

Once you've installed catalyst re-add the second card. Upon restart, the CCC should pop up and crossfireX should be enabled.

Since I already have an ATI, going SLI would be expensive as I'd have to buy 2 graphics cards instead of one plus what would I do with my Radeon? So if I'm going multi-GPU, Crossfire is where I'm going. However, is it really worth...
