Default RMA'd 8800 Ultra SSC and received GTX 260 back??

I RMA'd my 8800 Ultra (the fastest one evga made, N887) through EVGA which still is a top card today. It still can run all my games at 2560x1600 with no problems whatsoever except crysis of course. It started giving me BSOD and causing lock-ups and giving me nklddm or whatever stopped responding messages. So I RMA'd it and they're sending me back a GTX 260.

I feel like this is a significant downgrade, what do you guys think? I'm not trying to get a free upgrade, but I just don't want to lose anything other than the $500 price difference for what I originally paid for the card last year.
