Go for the new. You can't trust used hardware, especially a OCing component.. gl,,

If he can prove that the gtx280 is new I'd go for it. Otherwise get the new 260.

GTX 260.

it's new, about the same performance, and way cheaper.

I'd say that's a great value! A single GTX280 on 22" or below will pretty much destroy anything you throw at it, without even having to overclock it at all (including Crysis... ). Started seeing some choppiness at the highest settings on my 26" so i got me another for SLI, but 22" or less, like I said.

I'd say find a used GTX 280 used from a trusted trader for 220-250 shipped.
