I would think that a 260 with no AA would be able to handle almost anything out there at your resolution.

I would get something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130448

If you plan to use high levels of AA and AF, and you can get your CPU to 3.4-3.6ghz, a 280 would give you a boost over the 260.

If you leave your OC where it is, I don't think the 280 will be much different performace than a 260 in most games.

That's my opinion.

The 260 will crush the 8800GT that you have.
