The GTS 250 is a rebranded 9800GTX, which is only a bit better than the 9800GT. So, the 2 9800GT's would definitely perform much better.

Ya, 2 9800GT's would be faster. Are there any other details you could give though? For example, if I already had a 250 and it was of the 1GB variety I would stick with that.
