I still have a gtx280 and it still plays most games fine in dx9/10, apart from dx11/power draw the 6850 isn't that much better than the gtx280 in raw fps performance all things being equal, some games ie NFS Hot Pursuit play much smoother on the gtx 280 compared to the 6850 I've got.
I' m going to swap back to the gtx 280 soon to see how crysis 2 does because the 6850 can't handel crysis 2 dx 11 anyway.
If I had 2 gtx280s I'd be happy with them but I only have 1 so in the end I might have to buy another 6850 to try xfire, since my mobo is an older amd 790 chip.
