i'm not too sure, it looks like the drivers for quad sli still kinda suck, so i'd wait that one out until the drivers get a bit better...

or you could wait for dual geforce 8 or tri r600

One 7950GX2 should max out any new game on the market

I'd do what Nos said and wait for DX10 cards to come out. No sense in spending a bunch of money on three new ATI cards and a Motherboard, when DX10 is right around the corner.
