Wait! you are saying you love XFX so much you will stay with GTS 250s?
Not that 3 GTS 250s are anything but fast but that seems like a lame excuse. I'm also thinking you don't care about what DX11 will bring? Crysis 2 for example?
BTW 1 GTX 285 is quite a bit faster than a GTS 250. And the scaling in Tri-SLI should be similar between the 2 setups so 3 GTX 285s should feel quite a bit faster as well.
