If you READ his original post, he states that he wants to run Skyrim on one screen and WoW on another. At max.

A minimum of xfire or SLI would be needed. and I am taking an educated guess that it would have to be 2x 6970s or 2x 580s to do that and not crap themselves. Just my 2 cents.
Here are the Skyrim Recommended (High) Specs as Tweeted by a Bethesda employee:

Quad-core CPU
4 GB RAM
DirectX 9.0c video card with 1 GB RAM - GTX 260/Radeon 4890 or higher
6 GB HDD space
Windows XP/Vista/7, internet access, etc.

A 6870 would be more than enough for WoW. That and WoW still doesn't properly use Crossfire/SLI setups. A 6950 2GB might be better for Skyrim (AFTER a bunch of mods come out). I imagine dual 6870s would be more than enough for Ultra on Skyrim.
