Default Video Card Choices

I want to get a new video card, but i'm stuck on the selection, but it is these 2 choices

A Asus 7800GT dual card, which is 2 GPU's on one card, 256Mb for each GPU and is a one card SLI solution, and has quad SLI capabilites up to 1gb with 2 cards

or

A 7900 GTX 512MB which can SLI to 1 GB as well.

i would get the 7900gtx cuz i think that the 7800 ur looking at would be kinda pricy. and generally, a 7900gtx would beat a 7800gt

All I gotta say is that the 7900 uses a better fan and a different GPU with more unlocked cpapabilities, so I'd go with a 7900GTX.

I wouldn't spend 520$$$$ on that. It'll get replaced by nVidia shortly.
