I've tried the Canon EOS 1D Mark II N - and I love it!
If you have enough money, I'd go for this camera. You have the 20D, and it is not-so-very-unsimilar from the 1D II N. However, it has "only" 8.2 million pixel sensor, but the noise from the pictures should be less than from the 20D as of bigger pixels on the 1D II N (1.3 crop factor).
I hear that the Nikon D2Xs is a fine camera, but I know very little about Nikon. I just like the 1D II N, and recommend it.

Ive just ordered a D2x, so im going to be biased. Ive got a 70-200mm F2.8 Vr with a 1.7TC which work well on my D50. Ive had a go with a D2x and the D2h. They are both amazing cameras imho, i couldn't believe how fast it was compared to the D50. Its also very nice to handle with the verticle grip etc.
Its 12.4mp aswell and 7mp with the High Speed Crop giving you just over 8fps (5fps with 12.4mp)
All in all its a great camera and so is the D200. The 200-400mm F4 is an amazing lens aswell (something i can't afford at the moment) .
The 70-200mm is pin sharp and fast on focusing. I like it mainly because its 2.8 allowing me to use it in virtually any situation and coupled with a 1.7tc giving me some extra focal length and then doubled by the high speed crop on the D2x
