Default Upgrade from an 8800gt?

Hi, all!

My birthday's coming up soon and my parents have offered me an upgrade to my computer (w00t!). Now, I'm wondering, would a GTX 260 be a significant upgrade from my current 8800GT? Or would I need to go to a GTX 280 to see significant benefits?

My motherboard supports Crossfire, but I'd really like to stick nVidia if possible.
