Default video card help

I building a pc and all i have left to order up is my video card. My mobo supports up tp quad sli(8x8x8x8). So heres what I need to know.

1. Do I need a specific card to do an sli setup or can i do it with any card?

2. Can I use and video card I want?

3. Am i limited by the chipset on the mobo in anyway?

The mobo I'm using is here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130136

I was going to use this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131290 but theen I found out that only two of the ram slots support ddr2 1066 so i went with the msi.

edit: I am overclocking as well.
Also I plan on bying four of the same card. 1 for now to get it up and running and then more later. Is there any limit to the total memory i can use on my cards?
Thanks to all that can help

edit: I've found out that The card has to support it.....new queston. whats the difference between sli and crossfire?
