Driver support for new games is pretty poor so you usually have to wait at least a month or deal with ridiculous issues (I'm looking at you, Witcher 2 light blobs). Otherwise CrossFired 6870's are awesome.
It's been like that forever as far as I can tell. All the scorching cpu, mobo, and memory deals have always been in store pickup only. It's depressing because we don't have an MC in Washington and the closest Fry's to me is across the state :(
Some anecdotal advice from experience, in a P182 with a new 6870 CF setup and an H50. Having that fan setup is good for CPU temps but will turn the rest of your case into an oven. The H50 isn't enough to exhaust all the air out of the case. I had my cards in the 85-95c range and my HDD's in the...
Good points. I think it's awesome but not terribly practical for a lot of people. The money spent on multiple lower-end displays is probably better spent on a nice high end display if you're not flush with cash for 3x 24, 27, or 30 inch IPS.
