I ruled the gpu upgrade whether on gtx 280 or hd5850 because I would have my gtx 260 useless.
is this a good decision to keep the gtx 260 and have it on sli?

Sorry but ONE GTX260 requires 2x 6-pin connectors. Your PSU comes with exactly two. Now, you can use adapters but no one can guarantee anything.
