I can probably get 150 for my card also.
At those settings, a 295 might be a better bet.

[H]ardOCP says it can run Far Cry 2 at 2560x1600 at max settings with the SSC EVGA 285 but only 4X AA.

My opinion: After seeing why you want a new card, I'd suggest you wait at minimum for GT212. Considering the economy is in the ****ter, prices will most likely drop over time, so pick up a 285 once it is cheaper, or save for a 212. Your card is a damn good card.
