Radeon R9 290X Crossfire Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 290X Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon R9 290X put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon R9 290X to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to 30% better than a single Radeon R9 290X performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) it may perform worse than a single Radeon R9 290X. Expect this combination to draw up to 500 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.

I'm really tempted to get this configuration. Does anyone know how bad the driver reliance is? What games would perform worse under crossfire compared to a single 290x??

it's not the drivers as much as the games have problems with CF and SLI, so don't blame it on drivers only, usually if a game supports CF and SLI you don't need a ton of drivers to get great performance and scaling in that game.

You should be fine but if you want to make sure you could get a a 900w power supply.
