keep what you have. for few reasons
1) GTX 280 more and enough for 1680x1050
2) Single GPU systems are far less trouble then multi-gpu, no profiles to worry about, no performance lost in games that might not like multi-gpu solutions
3) save your money, new cards will be out sometime around Dec/January from the looks of it.
4) GTX 280 is cheaper then x2
