Default Gtx 260 SLI vs Gtx 285

If I were to run two of these 260's in SLI at 1920x1080, would I see any sort of performance gains over a single 285 at the same resolution?

I can't tell you how much exactly; you'll have to find some benchmarks, but you will see a significant increase in games supporting SLI.

Yeh you would see and increase. Probably around a 30% increase in games, although this depends on the rest of your rig. If the rest of your rig isnt that high-end then it may not be as much of an increase.

At that res it's smart ot have a core 216 SLi system, and it will be alot more future proof for future games. But just make sure you have a worthy psu.
