    Crossfire Vs SLI new PC help

    Just a quick question really i am currently working with scan to build a cobra system but waiting on some hardware to come out like the QX9770 but anyway basically i am not sure wether or not to get:

    4x ATI 3870 in Crossfire X
    3x of the Geforce 9 series (when the board to support 3 and 9 series come out ofc)

    Thing is i am not sure on what the game suppport is like for the ATI Crossfire. Atm i use 2x 7950GX2's but not all games support SLI so sometimes i have to just use one of the cards, is that what it is like for ATI or not because i read alot of info telling me diff things so any advice and i would be thankful.

    I will put the specs of the PC i am looking at getting, see if anyone has any suggestions

    QX9650 or QX9770
    4GB of DDR2/DDR3 (any input on best kind would be great)
    Motherboard depends on graphics setup
    2x SSD Drives Raid-0
    500GB drive for storage
    Asus Xonar D2 sound card (thought i might give it ago heard some good things)

    This is a long term project i am doing with a guy at over the next few months as i am aware some of this stuff is not out yet.

    Anyway thanks for anyhelp
