Besides clock, memory speeds and price, is there any difference between lets say this:

There is only one difference, and thats the Core.
The 8800 Ultra core will overclock to around 680Mhz, where as the 8800 GTX core will overclock to around 660Mhz.

Is it worth the extra 300$?

yea, definetely go with the gtx. the ultra is literally just a higher binned gtx, guaranteed to over clock a little further (~20Mhz according to track). save your $ and spend elsewhere. goodluck :)
