GTX 280 should score 16,xxx 3DMark 06 at 1280x1024 so it seem to be a driver issue so hope Nvidia will improve it in future driver. GTX 260 numbers are looking good.
In the high resolutions with AA/AF the scores are around a 47-58% higher than on the 8800 Ultra, so, guess what, the card is bounded by the memory bandwidth (145 GB/s vs 100 GB/s = 45% +-).

So, it looks like it is not going to be enough for 1920x1200 with SSAA 2x
