Well I can see what you mean. That's the main reason I've always stayed away from dual GPU cards. There always seems to be issues with them. And it didn't matter whether it was Nvidia or ATi, whether it's the 9800GX2, GTX 590, 4870x2, 5970 or the 6990. Typically it seems to be microstuttering issues. And occasionally lack of SLI or CF profile. Although it seems as though ATi is getting their act together more so than Nvidia in this regard. The 5970 and the 6990's didn't seem to have as many issues as cards past.
Regardless, CF 6970's will beat a 7970, and considering the cost, to me it's a no brainer especially if you already have one. I mean, why pay more for less performance?
