Actually the Ultras destroy the GTX's in programs like 3Dmark06 in other video benches. I will try to find the link.
Can't find link but there was a thread here in which someone linked a video where they show The lost planet benchmark being performed on a sli GTX system and Sli ultra system, moniters side by side, The ultra system got an average of double the FPS throughout the whole bench.

it's pretty simple though just get the card to them within 90 days and then you wait 4-6 weeks for a new card really.
