I've heard of running GPUs in pairs and quads but always thought SLI setups had to be in pairs. *shrugs*

The bleeding edge of GPU tech is always a funny thing. It's hard to justify spending a $1000 on a multi-card setup that'll be worth like $250 a year later and still be 95% as good as the next generation $1000 setup. Besides the whole driver issue (which is what this thread is about) is always the most problematic for the exotic multi-card rigs. I guess you get what you pay for.
Lol, but I bought 3 cards for good reasons, not the bad. But keep in mind even a single card that has 2 GPU's on one card would be affected as well.

Oh, as for the quads... 99% of the time they are only 2 cards with 2 GPU's on each card. SO they are not 4 cards in one system but only 2. Three singles are about the Max, as there are not many motherboards that support running 4 separate video cards at full speed in SLI.

Dual GPUs or Dual+ Card systems are actually quite common.
