Default XFX 7600GT XXX edition... is it worth it

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/109721/rb/19864359239 = £140 Specs: 590/1600

http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=106578 = £125 Specs 560/1400

Now i wanna get one of these and i'm tempted to pay the extra £15 for the faster clock speeds. In short, is it worth it?

I figured that the XFX will use higher quality chips which can stand to the faster speeds, and will come with better cooling compared to slightly weaker chips in the point of view card.

In reality how much does 30mhz on the core and 100mhz on the memory actually make?

The other thing is xfx is a well known manufacturer and i havent heard of "point of view" before.

Any comments/suggestions welcome

XFX is a good manufacturer.
