I did try out a gtx570 on my system(res 1680x1050) and it did increase min fps double+ in justcause2 over the gtx280. BFBC2 also was much higher fps rate but the 570 kept crashing black screen and nfs shift locked up to black screen. At $350+tax it went back to newegg and I overclocked the gtx 280 fiddled with settings(all's good now) and will wait it out til the top end cards drop a good $50-100 next fall. Your gtx280 should carry you through.
