The GTX 260 is better bang for the buck. $70 more (that's 35% more) and you get 50% more stream processors. It also comes with a free game.

Edit: mind you, the 9800GTX+ at $200 is a very bad price. For example this HD 4850 is only $140 and beats it.

9800 GX2 for any price under $300 is a steal, considering it (usually) trades punches with the 280 GTX at 1980 and below.
