Default 6800 vs. 7800 (stupid friend)

I told my friends at school that im getting a 7800GT for my new rig and he got jelous. He's an annoying kid you know one of those kids that thinks he knows everything. Ok anyway he said some like this "well if you get that ill just get the 700$ 6800 and make yours look like crap" lol i told you he was stupid. then i told him " the only thing better than the 7800GT is the ATI X800GTO2" and he freakin belived me. Now we all know that there's only about 4 things better than a 7800GT which are the 7800GTX, and i think a X1800XT but im not tooo god with ATI cards so i dont know. so I think Hes gonna go out and spen the 250 or so dollars on a X800GTO2 and find out hes a retard for ever doubting the might power of the 7800 series.

The 7800GS is more powerful than the 6800 series, but it isn't a replacement for the 7800GT as the 6800GS is for the 6800GT. The 7800GT is usually 10-20 fps faster in most games than the 7800GS.

Yea it's all about personal preference, where the price/performance factor hits the "sweet spot." Its' different for every person, so i'd just check out my options. I saw the eVGA 7800GT drop to $320 on newegg, quite a deal.
