its better to have a single strong gpu than having two weaker gpu. you will have better perforance with the single strong gpu as in dual gpus you get to have issues gaming.

pretty much what Phu says. Usually if you got the money, it's better to get one high-end GPU than two Mid-range GPUs to try to match a high-end GPU. less conflicts, less power requirements and such. People usually xfire/sli their single GPU when it starts to fall behind. They usually don't do it right away.
