My System Specs

Default

I don't know if quadfire is better than 2 GTX 295s I don't really follow SLI/Crossfire much, if I had 2 x4870x2s I wouldn't be getting rid of them so quickly for the 295s, thats a pretty powerful setup to begin with. Unless you're bent on having the most recent technology I don't see any reasonable justification to trade them up. The GTX295 is likely a simliar situation to the 9800GX2 which was discontinued(EOL) a mere 6 months after it went into production it wouldn't surprise me if nVidia did the same.

As far as I know Intel will release the i5 and i3 series under the Socket 1160, it will be their midrange and low end series cpus for the Core series.
