We need more details on the problem, be as specific as you can.

Any actual errors, or just performance (frames per sec) is disappointing?

What games are you playing?

A 77xx is not one I would recommend for extreme gaming with high settings on.

Running 2 monitors, yeah that would be a stretch for a 77xx with a current FPS shooter or MMO going on one screen.

I wouldn't try to Crossfire two of them either, better off jumping to a higher tier, and a better PSU if needed.

Unless it's a higher quality motherboard, usually the extra PCI-Express 16 slots are NOT allowing full use of all the lanes, varies greatly board to board.

See to shop a better card, you would want across the board 50% better performance at least, imho.

Also visit here with help on filling in your specs, video card is not the only factor: CPU/Chipset/RAM

Ive updated driver, even tried beta driver and no matter what it does it... Not always but mostly after playing an hr or so and in heavy traffic

It sounds like the card is overheating. Can you check your temperatures while gaming?

As Faladu has said though, you'd be better off getting a single stronger GPU than CrossFiring two 7700s. What PSU do you have?

For people having the "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered" problem and the following Kernal-Power BSOD, try using a VGA cable to connect your monitor to the graphics card instead of a DVI cable. This worked for me for some reason, and I had no problems for over a week. ...
