Unlikely.

Currently, you can only crossfire cards of the same two digit series, ie. the 38xx, 36xx, 29xx, etc.

Most Likely not, Even if Possible The 3xxx Series would be a big bottleneck on the 4xxx unless maybe as equally matched in specs as possible ( Ie a 3650 CF with a Lower End but more powefull 4xxx)

If your talking about most games, yes, but games like crysis (probably crysis 2 in the future) probably not.
