480 for sure! it used to be the fastest single gpu card, and it still is a beast. Its equal to a gtx 570, WAY better than a 550ti.
They are super cheap these days cause they are old, grab one if you find a cheap one.

Only problem is the gtx480 is well known to be the hottest, most power hungry card ever.

Toss a pair of GTX 550ti cards in and you'll be zoomin! :) 

Some games don't support SLI very well, but eventually Nvidia develops drivers that will offer the best support possible for the games.
