  1. It all depends on your budget, and if you already have a good PSU.

  2. Best answer
    A 280X is a rebadged HD 7970 so that puts it, relative to the newest generation of cards, in the 1050 Ti range. So if you want something a step up from there, you're looking at AMD RX 470/570 or Nvidia 1060 at least.

  3. just dont do it!first of all it is old...second you will need a very good PSU to support it...with the same money you can buy the GTX 1060 which is new and better(check the benchmarks to convince you)
