Well depending on your setup, you might be able to add another HD4890.

But the best card you can buy at the minute is the HD5970, which is two HD5870s in the same package.

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone HTC One M8 - Sense 7 - 6.0

A 5970 clocks the GPU's lower than two 5870's, mainly because it's a struggle to manage the heat of the GPU's and VRM's on a dual GPU card.
