If you're going single-GPU, then I'd probably get the 285 as it's the fastest of the bunch. I got 275s because they were cheaper and liked how they had 1792MB of VRAM/apiece.
Yea i agree,i'll probably get a E8500 cpu that will hopefully hit around 3.8 ghz to go with the 285.That will give me a nice performance boost i hope.Need to limit my budget to 500$ or less and this way i can keep the rest of the stuff and just change cpu and gfx card.

Update: Ordered a Gigabyte GTX285+E8500,also trying the Noctua NT-H1 instead of arctic silver 5 this time.It's supposed to deliver optimal performance directly instead of the 2 week setting time that arctic silver has.
