Default GTS 250 vs GTX 260

I currently have a EVGA 8800 GTS KO Edition which has been discontinued. The link below is the one I have

I have been offered $120 for my old card, (Its a long story but he insisted). Anyway So I wanted to go SLI with my card eventually however it has been a year and a half, and I never got a chance to purchase #2 so now I am considering getting a newer card hopefully this time I get a change to get #2 before it is discontinued. Either way I have $120 free money, plus whatever I am willing to add. I am only buying one card for now once again, and am debating between the GTS 250 and GTX 260. I really don't want to spend the the $230, but just can't decide. Is it really worth it to pay the $60 some dollars for it. How much of a difference am I gonna notice from my 8800. I have to be honest I can already play Crysis and Fear 2, on 1680 with almost full anti aliasing without much lag.

Here are the Links to the 2 cards I am considering

I also came across this card, is it better than the GTS 250, and in comparison to the EVGA 260?
