    If you really want 4x SLI, go and buy a Supermicro H8DCE, thats what you call beast.

    Single CPU/Single Dual Core will be pretty useless for running 4 7800GTX. You need DUAL DUAL CORE!!

    you'll need SLI for processors . would be good bragging rights especailly running games at 2560 x 2048 at 100fps with all detail turned right up
    your computer is similar to a fridge in that if it cannot keep a beer cold then it sucks

    And see if its possible to stick the dual-GPU graphics cards in there, so if it's possible to stick four of those in, in an 8-processor motherboard (lol getting ridiculous) thats 8 GPU's and 16 Cores.... and one very hot room

    SLI stands for 'scalable link interface' so if its scalable, it should therefore support more than 2 cards. Interestingly, some dual gpu cards include the pins needed to bridge the cards, though i'm not aware of anyone connecting 2 in SLI.
