Yes, Dual quad cores are possible.

You can run these processors in a multiple processor configuration

None, intel does not make motherboards in Socket 775 that will run multiple processors.

They're not "on the market" yet but can't be too far off.

There is no dual LGA 775 out there. The Socket 771 is what you're looking for. The 775 wasn't electrically designed for dual CPUs, unlike Socket 5, 7 , Slot 1, 2 and Socket 370. (Dual 462 for AMD)
