I wouldn't.

A GX2 is a good upgrade option for low end 8000 series cards and earlier, but because of 512MB RAM and crap drivers, the card is simply too limiting as a full-time replacement; its more of a holdover card while you wait for something more powerful in your price range. Still, it can still chug out >30 FPS with most anything, so its not all bad.

The issue is, that SLI scaling on the card is bad enough, Quad SLI + Buggy drivers = wouldn't even try it myself.

i returned the card because 2 x 8800gtx sli was almost the same
