Default How much better would the 260 be from 9800GTX+???

I just got a 9800 GTX+ a week ago and now I see the 260 with a MIR for $40, how much better would it be than what I got. Might use the step up program
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N873-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

if you use the step-up program it has to be with EVGA off of their website, and you have to use it by their prices ( which are different than newegg)

but if you have the money, i think it would be a great upgrade

I would assume its about 15% increase, maybe 20-25% with the GTX260+, or better yet, they should just call it the GTX270.
