Tri-SLI'd GTX 280s is one of the 2 highest performing GPU setups available. 2 9800 GX2 doesn't even beat ONE 4870 X2.

The GTX280 Tri-SLI by far. Quad SLI is poorly optimized at the moment and doesn't work well with everything, whereas Tri-SLI tends to work better.

There is a lot of assumptions here, since there are very few benchmarks directly comparing those two very rare setups. Performance depends on the specific game. Here are some from guru3d, including quad 9800gx2, tri gtx280, and quad 4870x2.
