i had a 780i, yep...shure did. and i bag on Vdroop because you have to apply more voltage than necessary to achieve the same clock (ie more heat), due to the voltage dropping off .5V or some **** on load. that = design flaw, no matter what its supposed to do. that abrubt (sp?) spike/drop in voltage also influences stability IMO.
vdroop is the devil.

im going for the 780i cause the asus maximus formula is playing up, why cant it play nice and not freeze? plus i am hoping to go SLI in the future. At the moment i want a stable computer, even when im not OCing, which at the moment, the maximus isnt...

crossfire scales better at high resolution. thats even sexier.

EDIT just noticed you have a 20", probably not a big differece in SLI vs Crossfire at that size.
