No nVidia GTX400 series entries? Pfui.

The top single-processor cards at the moment are the nVidia GTX480 and the ATI Radeon HD 5870. ATI has the 5970, which is a dual processor product.

You can get more performance from two or more cards in SLI (nVidia) or Crossfire (ATI).

Here's a seriously extreme system:

eVGA Classified SR-2 review with Quad SLI GTX 480 on LN2

(Dual 6 core Xeon CPUs, 4-way SLI. Liquid nitrogen isn't recommended for daily use.)

Speaking of power, make sure that your power supply is up to the task. The GTX480 and the 5970 are essentially 300W cards. There is no single PSU that can supply four GTX480 cards, as far as I know.
