The 7970 is still a baller in terms of performance and it also supports almost all current features except for true audio but that is not worth the investment in a new card.

Thanks for the replies guys, appreciate the advice. I can get another 7970 ghz quite cheap (around 200) but as some of you mentioned crossfiring can be unstable so I may sell my one 7970 and get a liquid cooled r9 290x and overclock it, then maybe crossfire it later on. Still a bit stuck between the two decisions; I hate being an indecisive person.

I have 2x HD7970 and apart from some indie games i have never had a problem with crossfire, BF4, crysis and any other big game that rerquires the horse power of 2 7970s support it and work well. I am waiting to upgrade to 2x Nvidia maxwell cards.

Running at 5960x1080 my two HD7970's still pump out 90-110 FPs with everything at ultra in BF4.
