Why such an old card for SLI? Two GTX 460 1GB cards in SLI are the way to go.

Thats a good deal for a GTX 280.Leadtek is an OK company.I would however be extra cautious about a used card.

As I said before, Leadtek is an OK brand, and I would go for that card if it were selling for that low.

Yes, I'm sure that the Corsair can handle GTX 460s in SLI.

Generally speaking all brands are nearly equal.The only difference is warranty and support.Over the years, certain brands like EVGA have carved out better reputation due to their better warranty and support.It would not have been a problem if you were buying a new card from the store.Since you are getting a used card online, you should double-check that everything is fine.
