Diablo® III

help picking weapon

with a 1hand bow and quiver i have 8.4k damage at level 60 at the STARt of inferno 2.30 attacks per second.

equipping a 2hand crossbow says it will decrease my damage by 300 but infact the damage tab goes up by 2k to around 10.4k but then i attack 1.40 times per second.

what is better??

First, to insure that you're getting clean numbers, remove the Sharpshooter talent (your damage tab with Sharpshooter will actively increase your DPS until it estimates 100% crit, which is nonsense). From there, anything that increases the little green damage number is an upgrade.

Be aware that the in-tab damage calculator takes your attack speed, passives, and attacks into account, so it's more accurate than estimates in other games.
