Re: Choice of 280 if you're still running a 1280x1024 monitor
i also still play @ 1280*1024 (space in my room limits me to get a bigger monitor!),i upgraded from 8800GTX to GTX280..
Well, the performance increased for some games like crysis and Mass effect, i can now raise the quality and still has a better performance than my old card..
Granted, the increase in performance is no near the jump from SLI7800GTX to 8800GTX! but i am certain with newer games, things will change
