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?

Thanks for your input. Please give examples where applicable, and comparisons.

PS My specs thus far are

Intel 3GHZ Duo Core E8400
4Gig DDR2 800mhz
Soundblaster X-FI Titanium
2 1.5 Terrabyte Seagate Hardrives
Ultra X2 550 Watt power supply
2 LG 22" monitors at 1680x10??
