you can not quad SLI any four nvidia cards except having 2 GTX 295's. You can Quad Crossfire a 4890 and 3870 or 4870 most of ATI's high end.

you can only run dual GTX 295s. they are two GPU's each and the maximum is quad SLI.

I believe for ATI you can have up to four GPUs from the same series (like HD3000 or HD4000, but not mixed) together. With nVidia you can have four GPUs, but only using two GTX 295 or 9800GX2. You can have three with GTX 280/260, GTS250, 9800GTX vanilla/+, and 8800GTX/Ultra. The rest of nVidia's GPUs can only do SLI with to cards.

oh i didnt know gtx295 is two gpu.

so i can only do three 8800 gts g92 and not four 8800 gts g92 right?

we should be able to do 4 8800 gts g92 since it is single gpu each unit which makes it 4 gpu and 4 gpu is max.

8800GTS (G92 or G80) can only do regular SLI. They don't have the the two SLI ports required for triSLI
