The GTX 285 is what I would get, almost the same PPD as a GX2 without the dual-gpu and excess heat hassles. I just mentioned the GTX 295 because he asked for the Absolute Best GPU.
There is supposed to be a fix for the GTX 295/Vista 64x problem. From what I've read the GTX 295 sees the HDMI port as gpu 0 and the two dvi ports as gpu 1, if you put a hdmi to dvi adapter and a dummy plug/monitor on the hdmi port it solves the problem.

It works for Vista64. You don't need to see, you don't need to test. It just works, you'll need to find the driver that works for you though (for me it's 185.20).
Go out, buy that adapter, plug it in, put dummy on it, disable SLI, extend desktop --> two cards folding. It's really that easy.
Sorry, I meant to post this earlier and completely forgot, must be old age creeping in...
