7900 GT is much better.

and the GTX is much more exspensive becuase Its a bigger core and its much more expsensive to make where as the GT is really cheap to make and its obviously faster.

The GTX is a bit faster but a lot more expensive. I myself got a GT because it is a great card for a great price, significantly better than the 7800s for the price difference.

Tom's Hardware has a review of current GeForce cards.

he's talking about a 7800 GTX vs a 7900 GT
the 7900 GT is faster

I got a 7900 GT a while ago. it's a great card. I got it overclocked to 750MHZ (using a volt mod)
