well i dont know what to tell ya for lower end cards(i dont know why you wouldnt just replace the 280, who cares if other people think it runs hot, its your card not theirs and it'd be free)

but theres only(below are cheapest/most worthwhile of their species):
GTX 260-216 $220
GTX 275 $255
unless you want two GTS250's or something, which would net more points than an individual card, but you're talking about in the same system as the GX2

soo...
