Almost definitely not worth it.

There are use cases for 4 powerful video cards running together, but if that were the case you wouldn't be asking about it on this forum.

What do you want to use your PC for?

For starters you almost certainly only need 1 video card, probably no more than 8GB RAM (16 at most), definitely no more than one bluray writer (if you need one at all!) and probably only one hard drive.

Needs more bluray drives. I don't think he's serious, guys. His location is: Troll Land.

It was rather obvious from the original post that it made no sense.

Why would anyone interested in quad graphic cards, as well as all the other hardware, go with a failed Bulldozer processor???

I figured, he was either crazy, on drugs, or has a good sense of humor.
