I think part of the problem is everyone can't get passed this game as their primary comparision because it is the "system killer". However, one game cannot paint a picture for every other game on the market. It gives you a general idea (much like 3dmark) but as we've seen with 3dmark it can vary significantly.
Yeah, if it weren't for Crysis, this would be a great improvement.

Still not as much as the 8800 was at release, but definitely a solid jump in speed.

I guess the 8800 series was just too damned efficient for its own good. Its hard to improve on it apparently.

If I had a large amount of money to burn i might buy a 280, but it just doesn't seem reasonable considering I play all my games (except crysis) at 2048x1536 or 1600x1200 already. Being able to add 4xAA would be nice, but its not worth $600 to me.
