What sort of difference will I be looking at?
Dont waste your $$$ on a GTX 280. Get a 260 like I did and overclock it, most will do 700 on the core and 1500 on the shaders which will make it faster than a stock GTX 280 at a fraction of the cost.
The difference will be well worth it, I came from a heavily overclocked 9800GTX and my 260 smokes it where it counts in gaming. Higher frame rates and deals with AA and AF much better.
