Is it just me or does "tri-fire" sound so much cooler than quadfire or crossfireX?

Yes if your MOBO supports it. And if your case can fit them (but if your mobo can so can your case Im assuming)
AMD's 790fx chipset usually works the best.

I ordered the MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard along with 2 Sapphire 3870s and I am wondering if my mobo will allow me to add 2 more 3870s in the future.

Intel has more performance atm, BUT AMD has more bang for your buck imo.

If your looking for quad core, AMD's quad core are much better value (go with the 9850 if your thinking about OCing its not great, but out of AMD's Quad cores its the best and is about $235 dollars)
If you want to save cash, get some good OCing, and get a good dual core, get the AMD 5000+ BE for about $80+

Yes, of any make(IE Asus,MSI,Saphire, or stock ATI) as long as their clocks are the same.

It looks like it, BUT you can also get single slot Sapphire 3870's Here or Here
Or you can grab a 3870x2
