Default nVidia 280 gtm's

Do you think they're worth it right now? I haven't been able to find any place that sells them by themselves, because I'm going to upgrade my laptop sometime, though I don't need to any time soon, I want to go from 4 gigs to 6 gigs of ram and run the 280 gtm's on SLI, because I'm running 2 260 gtm's currently. There's this whole manual in my closet with directions on how to take apart the laptop and upgrade it, but not where to buy the damn parts =/, bastards. I've seen a site that claimed to sell the 280 gtm's but it was a scam, thank God for WOT, ABP, and Avast!. I was just curious if anybody knew, I can find the RAM on my own, no problem.

Also; Yes, I'm on an Alienware m17x and I love every second of the multi-colored gaming glory, even if it does weigh about as much as a baby, it doesn't move much aside from my place, to class/lan parties.

Id say dont buy any video cards yet, I think all the ones currently still operate on dx10, while dx11 is right around the corner with windows 7. Save the money, wait for cards to get dx11 support and then buy one of those.
