At 1280x1024 the GTX260 will be more than enough, especially when paired with your i7. Make sure it is a Core 216, just check the specs and make sure it has 216 Processor cores and not 192.

GTX260 is about 5-15% slower than the GTX275.

The difference between 1GB and 2GB of video memory will be minimal to none at 1280x1024. High video memory 'needs' high resolution to show any improvement.
 
This is what you need :
