Sell the 285, go with SLI 570s or if you can afford them go with SLI 580s. Keep the 260 for Physx

I wish I had a 260

You should fold on those beasts, you have about 20-30k just in gpus, + another 20+ in bigadv on the i7

IMO, sell the 285's and get 470/570 SLI, and keep the 260 for Physx.

Like someone else said, 260 is also overkill. So no, you won't notice any real difference between 260/285 for physx. Maybe 3-4 frames, but that's it.

EDIT - Oops, sorry read your post wrong. 570 has better price: performance ratio. IMO not worth paying >$100 extra for 5-8 frames extra.

The 580 was a full 20 FPS better then the 570 and when you have that high of a resolution you definitely want the extra VRAM
