I'm relatively certain the GTX 260 is better bang for the buck. It will probably use a little more power, but that's what you get with a better card. The temperatures I am not sure about, I guess the 250 runs a bit cooler but that's also something that goes along with a lesser powered card. The only thing about that GTX 260 is the brand; eVGA definitely has a better reputation and "extras" (e.g. step-up program) in comparison to Palit.

EVGA is a much better brand but the 260 is a much more powerful card. The 260 needs a 500w power supply with 36a on the 12v rail/rails. The 250 will draw slightly less.

Another vote for GTX 260,especially since the price difference is $10 its definitely worth it :)

Then palit gtx 260 i shall get. Thanks for the comments guys. And I think I can no longer fit an EVGA gtx 260 in my budget. It's the palit I can afford. Again, thanks!
