Fully agree on that, but as for the Quad SLI/crossfire aspect, just get a motherboard that can handle 4 Single GPU cards and be done with it, like the EVGA classified X58 boards or similar from Asus or gigabyte.
They're a bit more expensive sure, but the flexibility is there for a variety of graphics cards setups, and can ulimately handle 6 core gulftown CPU's, wich are the fastest CPU's Intel makes, even if i'll gladly admit that sandy bridge is awsome for overclocking and value for the money, performance wise....
