The 295x2 is essentially two 390X's under the hood, so the raw power is obviously in its favor. But not all games have good support for multiple GPUs, and the power consumption is pretty damn high. I'm not really impressed with either price point, but I'd lean towards the 390X.

Crossfire support is, if anything, getting worse over time as new games come out.

Yes, but for 1080p a 390x is enough, and a 295x2 is 50% more expensive.

You will obviously need to buy a new psu for the 295x2 so 390x all the way

Not really, but you can crank up to very high setting while keeping 60 fps

You'll be able to play games with really good visuals at 60 fps. The problem with maxing games out at 1080p is that most of the visual improvement only noticeable until you get to high settings then anything higher makes little difference to visuals but tanks your fps. I don't max games out at 1080p for this reason and I have a gtx 1070.
