For benching yes, but for games absolutely not. Pretty much all games I have seen don't run any better in a Quad GPU setup. I would say they perform worse in a lot of cases. 2 single GPU's is a better way to go in Crossfire or SLI IMO. Anything over and above 2 GPU's the returns in gaming are less and less the more you add. Plus the expense, is not justifiable.
