with that resolution, i think 280 is approaching overkill, of course then you can try to see how much eye candy you can add.
280 should be plenty though.

600W should be fine to run a single 280, just don't plan on going SLI anytime soon. Another thing, does it come with the 8 Pin PCI-E power? If not you can use the converter, but don't plan on that for a long term solution.

A 260 would probably be fine for what you need.

BTW, don't bump your threads more than once every 24 hours.

Seeing as the Power Supply you have has no 8 pin PCI-E connectors, you would probably be better off with a GTX 260. They only require the 6 pin connector.

I would just get a GTX 260 if I were you, especially if you're gonna run that CPU at 2.4ghz.

I thought that the 280's came with a converter for the PCI connector, but I could be wrong.
