Default Thinking upgrade

I bought my two gtx260's about 2 or 3 years ago and am wondering if there is a single card solution out there at a reasonable price that would give me a significant performance boost, any recommendations?

I've been completely out of the loop on vid cards for a good two years now...

I'm not keen on SLI anymore either, I find some games don;t support it, others it's a hassle to get working and others still I'm not even positive if it's utilizing the second card unless I run a termp program in the background...

Thanks for any recommendations...

what you have currently is on par with a GTX480. so for around the same performance thats the card you would want for a single card solution. there really is no single card out thats faster than what you have whats wrong with running sli? or do you want DX11?

it's okay... I can't get it running with Mafia 2 right now but I haven;t really gone scouring around the net to find out how... that's one thing I'm starting to get tired about with SLI...
