  1. Just get the GTX 285 same thing it will just adjust to the GTX 280 clocks.
  2. It's because it's been replaced by the 285. You could always get a recertified model...

  3. That is the green team for you.
    Get the gtx 285 as bpogdowz said. A better card for around the same price.

    If you still wish for the Evga GTX 280 I found some, but it is on EBay.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Do NOT buy the GTX285 hoping to be able to SLI with your GTX280. They are NOT the same and it will not work.

    Your best bet is to keep an eye out for a recertified model or eBay.

    +1 that is correct. The 280 and 285 are not the same cards.
