1100W is more than enough for 8800GTS SLI. Check out http://www.slizone.com/ for some recommended wattage requirements.
Quad SLI is 4 video cards or two GX2's (a GX2 is two video cards in one).
I know of the GX2, but do you think an ''ASUS L1N64-SLI WS Dual L (1207FX) NVIDIA nForce 680a SLI MCP SSI CEB AMD Motherboard'' would work a 4 card set up and does this new board suport the AMD FX-74 processor and does 4 cards mean you need 2 power supplies or just one with MANY power connectors?
Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

SLI/Crossfire isn't worth the extra cost or power consumption. You could easily pull off better framerates on a 8800 GTX or a better card (when they release a better card) than going with a SLI setup now.
As far as PSUs are concerned, I usually recommend a name-brand product (Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, Fortron Source/FSP, BFG, etc.). The components are of a higher quality and usually don't have to worry about hardware failure due irregular power flow from your power supply. As important as wattage is, look for PSUs with at least 18A on the +12V1 and +12V2 rails.
