If I didn't already have my current card and were looking for that level of performance I'd consider it.
the galaxy has HUGE headroom for overclocking too. Mine can do 850/1700/2000 at 1v (furmark tested and approved). 24/7 at 750/1500/1850 and it never breaks 80c.
OP, stick with the 280 for old games, not a significant difference in frames but less power consumption. Newer games is a no-brainer.
