Depends, do you want to play any current/soon to come out games?
Or can you wait for 7xxx series, which will dramatically reduce the prices of the 6xxx series.

well the only games i play currently is league of legends and minecraft. Currently waiting for Diablo 3 and Possibly Guildwars 2. The only thing that bugs me atm is the random crash and having to reset my computer multiple times in order for it to get passed the windows loading screen and hope for no pink/black screens

There is a good chance you will get a 4-5xx series card in return for the 280.

For those games, a GTX 460 1GB would do you nicely I'd think.
Or a 4890 1GB on the Radeon side.
