8800 ultra is 10fps higher than gts250/9800gtx+

there is no other nvidia card that performs near 8800 ultra. you either get 10fps inferior card or exchange.

From what I can see the GTS 250 has the slight edge in most games. I doubt what hohohee said is true, but maybe there's a game where the 8800 Ultra outperforms.

EDIT: Not my favorite site, but here's some benchmark comparisons from Toms Hardware:
