Default Re: GeForce GTX 280 or 9800 X2? Which one would you buy?

You have GT SLi? If so I would OC those to 660-700|2000 and call it even. The GTX 280 will be better in some cases @ 1920x and up with AA active. Here's one glaring example-

Personally, I would not move from overclocked 8800GT SLi to a 9800GX2 unless you planned on going Quad SLi. I'd get a GTX 260 or 280 now, and SLi later if that is what you want to do.
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.96GHz (1.36v)|Mushkin 998681 XP3-12800 (3x2GB)
ASUS TUF Sabertooth (X58)|ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II (980|4604)|ASUS PA246Q
WD VelociRaptor 150GB HD (x2)|Pioneer DVR-2920Q|LG GH22LS30|Klipsch PM20 2.0
SilverStone OP1000-E|SilverStone TJ10-B|Thermalright U-120 Extreme|Win 7 HP x64
