Well prices are comming down on the 280gtx soon because of the 'new' cards by nvidia and ATI. So i would wait and see how those prices turn out before making a decision.
8800gt in SLI is not bad, but i always find upgrading to SLI to be pointless. A 280gtx is more reliable in terms of frame rates. And no i dont think it is overkill. But the price of it compared to another 8800gt is not justified, unless you have cash to burn, but i doubt that.
If i was being honest, I personally prefer Nvidia, but i would consider a 4870 1gb instead. Its a 1/3rd cheaper than a 280gtx and the perfomance is almost the same, sometimes better, especially in the source engine games like term fortress 2, counter strike, half life and left 4 dead.
A 4870 1gb i would recomend
