The GTX 280 is twice the card as the 8800GTX in terms of raw power. I was referring to the fact that once the 768MB ram barrier is crossed the 8800GTX will fall off really quickly like the 9800GTX already does because of the framebuffer. In WiC is basically halves the performance of the card because it has to start swapping texture memory.

Normal performance

Framebuffer limitation
