Crossfire R9 280X

So i have been debating on whether to get another Asus 280X and run crossfire. As it is now, i dont like AMD especially the drivers, but i dont want to sell my card for $200 and put in $320 for a GTX 780. so as far as drivers and such are concerned, how is the 280x when crossfired and how is the overclocking when crossfired?

The Radeon R9 280X is basically a Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, you can pair your 280X with 7970 GHz.

But I'd go with a GeForce GTX 780

For crossfire R9 280x with your forum Specs mentioned looks the "Recommended Minimum PSU Wattage" is: 727w...and this without CPU overclocking.

You'll be very tighten when fully loaded.

R9 280x (one fan not spinning)
I had this graphic card for around a year now and it was working perfectly fine. Used it to mine cryptocurrency for a month or two but after that it was just used to game. I used to never go over 70~75c but now it goes to 83c while gaming and the (one) fan is pretty loud. Any fixes?
