IT IS MUSH BETTER!!!! its amazing that there can be that big difference in real life gaming, no more SLI for me. it just runs so much smother in every game.
280GTX runs not nearly as hot, my Asus ENGTX280 idels at 39c and is 64c running 3D Mark Vantage.
Told you so. Teheeehee.

I'm going from a Gx2 to a 260, and I can't be any happier.

I'll eventually step-up to a 280 when the prices drop (hopefully in 90ish days!).

It may be a downgrade, but right now i rather have a single gpu solution.

It's worth it. With quad SLI and Crysis @1920x very high DX10, as soon as I turn on AA, frame rates would drop to single digits, completely unplayable. With two GTX 280s, same setting but with 2xAA and vsync on, framerates stays above 30 almost constantly. Huge difference in terms of gameplay smoothness.

Does the GTX 260/280 support multiple monitors while in SLI?

Yeah, and I forgot to mention that AF is set at 16X as well.
