This seems like a good op to pawn off my GTS if the GT is cheaper/faster, but I don't have an extra PCI-E card lying around.

That information comes from the same benchmark that was saying it's faster than the Ultra
We will see imo it don't make sense to release 1 year later a card with the words 'GT' embedded in it and supposedly being faster than the GTX and the rest of all card except the Ultra. I have heard is suppose to replace the GTS 320 but honestly Nvidia sure like to do things in a weird and frustrating way sometimes..

This would also render the current lot of GTS's worthless, or atleast down to a price of nearly $150-$175. Why would nvidia do this to their market?

For the same reason Apple nearly cut their iPhone prices in half? Nvidia is making plenty a profit off of their 8 series cards now, because they are owning ATI. Now that ATI seems to have some cards in their future lineup which could be a threat, Nvidia is simply becoming more competitive I guess.
