Yup, you can run two 7950GTX video cards on that board for QUAD SLI.

Yup, you can run Quad SLI. Of course, it depends what monitor(s) you're running, because if you just plan on using a normal 19" or something, it's a waste of money and power. Quad SLI is only beneficial if you're running games on 24" monitors or multiple monitor setups, if you're not, just stick with two 7900 GTX's instead.
