Default Which is better 7900 gt or the 7800gtx?

I was wondering which is better 7900 gt or the 7800gtx? The reason I ask is because the 7800gtx is a lot more expensive but the clock speeds on the 7900 are a lot better. Just wondering why it would be more expensive.

EVGA 7900GT

or

EVGA 7800GTX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130237

Thanks for the help guys in advance.

Yes, the 7900gt is better. But if that was the 7800gtx 512mb, i would say go for that. But in this case go with the 7900gt.

Damn r_moore04, are you even capable of writing a coherent sentence?

The 7800GTX is slightly faster, but the 7900GT is probably a much better buy.

*edit*

Woops! Scratch that! I grabbed the wrong 7800

Go with the 7900 gt. It's has a slightly higher clock speed and the price is like 200 bucks cheaper, lol.

Go with the 7900 GT. It uses newer technology and runs cooler, while sipping less power.
