^ it depends which games you play, as in some the 4870 X2 will come out ahead of the GTX 295, and by a good margin as well.

Quad SLI and Quad CFX will run just fine, although you'll want to overclock to take advantage of the full potential.

the sweet spot is 2 or 3 high end single design or depending on budget 3 sli or tri sli gtx 285 or crossfire or trifire 4890 but the amount of cards depend on your screen(s) and size not so much on your cpu

Without the real estate, Multiple cards won't scale above single card solutions, as they will have no work to do.

Agreed. I wouldn't even consider more than a two GPU setup (two actual GPUs, not a pair of dual-GPU cards) unless you're running at a minimum of 1920x1080 (16:9) or 1920x1200 (16:10).
