Nvidia 8800GT or 4xATI HD 2600XT

I'm now in the process of choosing the configuration for my high end Mac Pro and I was wandering which graphics to buy. I know that the 4x crossfire should logically be better with the higher combined ram and 4 GPUs, but I don't really know how crossfire of 4 cards is supported by applications such as cinema 4D, Maya, Blender, video editing and other creative applications. How about hooking on more monitors? Are there any drawbacks to 4x crossfire?
Also, is it possible to use non apple RAM in Mac Pro, since the ones that you can add at order are very expensive.
Thanks for answers.
