Default 7800GT OC or 7800GTX OC

Is paying the extra $200 worth it? whats the difference?

Nope, an OC'd 7800GT is just barely a few steps in performance away from a 7800GTX. And now it's more like paying twice as much for a few more FPS, definitely not worth it.

Your better off looking at a OEM X1900XT if you want great performance for value (still expensive but awesome video card), or wait for the 7900GT and 7900GTX (most likely still not worth it but who knows only time will tell).

the bfg gtx has a small clock increase, 100MHz i think. but for that much more its so not worth it. i'm just gonna wait for the 7900's for my new build and go from there

i agree with cvb....just keep your current video card (6600GT) because the 79xx series will be the better value as it will last longer than the 78xx series...
