The GTX 260 is fine.. Photoshop performance relies more on the CPU and you having an i7 should pose no problems on that regard.. I don't have much idea on this but i heard the CS5 to be able to use the GPU for offloading work from the CPU in which case, CUDA might help which is available with the GTX 260 also.. The slower performance could be related to it being a pre release and i guess with the final release It'll be fine..

For CS5 you really, really want a fermi card.

At the moment the Premiere Pro CS5 system requirements include Quadros and the GeForce GTX 285 as supported cards, however we expect to see the Fermi-based GeForce GTX 480 and 470 ones added in the not too distant future.

Yes, this singlehandedly gives the Adobe CS5 market to nVidia but given the share of nVidia Quadro boards versus ATI FirePro - we can't say we're surprised.
