Default GTX 260..... 192 vs 216

Is the performance difference really that significant between the 192 and 216 cards?

I purchases an MSI GTX 260 (192) for $209 last night..... and am wondering if I made the wrong choice..... although the cheapest 216 core was $259, which was a little bit high for me (EVGA super-clocked)

I'm considering canceling the order on newegg though since it shouldn't be too late.... but is it really worth it?

I kind of figured upgrading from this 7800 GTX 512mb to any 260 would yield great results.... and with the 55nm products on the horizon the current 2xx series seems a bit dated as it is, i'm just not quite sure if the 216 is really that much better or worth the extra $50.

any opinions?
