Yes i'm pretty sure you can... but if you are willing to do such a thing just wait for the 4890x2.

Now you gonna ask if you can do four 4890x2, i guess?

Fudzilla says that ATI has no plan to officially make one, and through ATI's partners could make one if they wanted, they all say the power usage would be too high so they wont bother with it. But even if they did, you could only run two 4890X2's since crossfire can only scale to four GPUs.
Fudzilla - HD 4890 X2 unlikely
