I've always bought ATI, but Adobe products are heavily biased towards nVidia and OpenGL. The 260 also has a good track record for After Effects. At $189.97 (after rebates), it's definitely on for a hell of a sale. But I'm noticing a bunch of ATI cards around the same price range that are a little newer or have better specs on paper. Is this GTX 260 a good buy, even though it's a little dated, or are there newer cards around the same price range I should be looking at? Or is this already completely overkill, and I should be looking more at the $100 rage?
I'm assuming, of course, that it's more than time to replace my x1950 Pro. Or am I underestimating its power? How much of a jump would I see going from the x1950 to a GTX 260?

You are spot on with your choice and reasons.. I'd have myself recommended a GTX 260.. You may get a radeon HD 5770 for a similar price but looking at your order of working priority, i'd still recommend a GTX 260.. And it'd show a significant jump in performance over the X1950, especially in gaming..
Its completely your choice.. I would check on warranty though.. I heard BFG provides lifetime warranty.!!
I decided to grab the MSI. Better cooling, higher clock, and though the BFG has a lifetime warranty, the MSI still has a 3-year.
Any reason for choosing a 750W PSU over a 550W PSU?
Even a GTX 285 would run on a good 550W PSU.
I have a 500w right now running four hard drives, and might be adding more drives in the near future. I felt like I was already stretching it a bit thin, and there's no harm in going overkill on the PSU. I picked up a Corsair TX750W yesterday, which should handle things nicely.
