I dont think microstutter has even been fixed. I'd say stay away from quad SLI 9800gx2 unless you are using it to fold.

Is there any real benefit with running three or four of any card? I have only seen old data and would love to see a current article on this....

Well I've seen GTX 285s and other high end cards scale well with tri SLI, but the last time I checked, quad 9800GX2 was an absolute disaster. People were getting LOWER 3dmarks with quad sli than with just one 9800gx2.
