Default most powerful card that requires only one 6 pin connection?

what is the most powerful card that can run off only one 6 pin connection?

Either ati or nvidea, curious to know what the best card is for both and overall

never mind metaphor, i found the comparison. the 5770 seems to be pretty equal to crossfired 5670's but of course would use less power and would run 100% for all games

Sorry I am a bit late here but the 4870 requires 2 x 6 pines not one.
