Best graphics card(s) for Antec Neo 520w PSU

Ok guys I need to decide on the best graphic card(s) for my PSU: an antec neo 520w with 40A on the 12v rail.
This computer has a non-OC phenom x 4 965 at 3.4ghz and 16gb 1600 ram, there is no dvd drive and there is only one HDD. Also my case has good airflow.

I was looking at the gtx 480 because of its power for the price but Im hearing it might be really loud and hot. I want a card(s) with similar performance, crossfiring/sli old cards is ok if my psu can handle it. I am upgrading from a gts 250.

EDIT: I am looking at a price range of 200 dollars! If you recommend a crossfire or sli setup i would buy one card and then the other later on(total under 400)

    If you can stretch 100 more bucks, the 7950 is a beast for the price

    Your PSU can run pretty much any single card solution out there by the way.

    7870 2GB, not a mere 7850 2GB, for $195 ;)

    Agreed with above. That PSU has plenty of +12V amperage for modern single GPU cards.
