I think 2560X1200 is the highest it will go, not 100% sure though.

2560 x 1600 for a single monitor with the Radeon HD 5970 IIRC. The maximum resolution with ATi Eyefinity is 7680 x 3200, with six monitors, although I'm not sure if it counts as DVI.

This depends on the type of dvi connectors you have. With single link DVI you can get resolutions essentially upto 1920*1200. To get to the 2560*1600 resolution you would need to have dual link DVI connectors. And the correct cables of course.

But as for "the best video card", the high end models support the 2560*1600 resolutions with DVI connection.

This card for example, lists a max resolution of:
240Hz Mx Refresh Rate
Max Analog : 2048x1536
Max Digital : 4096x2160

Dual link DVI is limited to 2560x1600 as noted here:

So, to get the other resolutions, you have to use HDMI 1.4 or Displayport 1.4

I should also add, that I wonder if maybe the reason some video cards list 2560x1600 as the max resolution is because of the limits of DVI. ... and by that same logic... I wonder if you actually used HDMI or Displayport, if those same cards could go higher. (I don't know the answer).
