Most will tell you that a single high end card is better than 2 GPU`s for stability and driver issues. Yes 2 R9 280 will beat just about any single card out there for raw power but CF can run in to driver issues and micro stutter. For your budget and setup you want i would probably go CF with the 2 280`s
