Default 7800GTX vs. X1800XT 512

The BFG 7800 GTX OC and the ATI X1800 XL 512mb:

I can't decide which one to get. They're both the same price so which one is better?

------------------------EDIT----------------------
X1800"XT" not "XL"

7800GTX-512MB > X1800XT > 7800GTX-256MB > 7800GT-256MB > X1800XL.

The 7800GTX-512MB is by far the best, MUCH better than the X1800XT.

The X1800XT, however, is A BIT better than the 7800GTX, but is $100+ more.

The 7800GT is better than the X1800XL, but the X1800XL is still mroe expensive.

Sorry, let me clarify a little more...

-BFG 7800 GTX OC 256MB

-ATI X1800 XT 512MB

I have to go through my company's supplier and the price on each is $540. I already ordered the 7800GTX but it has been back ordered for a month already. The X1800XT just became available through my company so I can cancel the 7800GTX order if the X1800XT is better.

From the comparisons I've seen it looks like the X1800XT512 out-benchmarks the 7800GTX256 by 1000 in each category in 3DMark05.

Also, I probably won't need to overclock either of them because which ever one I get is going to be ten times better than anything I've ever had. BUT which one is better for OCing if I chose to do so.

3dmark means nothing its all about real world gaming in BF2, FEAR, DOOM3, etc.

that is a way overpriced GTX, you can get one now for 450 dollars but if you have the money i guess go with the X1800XT
