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.

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.
