Is there a difference between these 2 cards besides price and game?

just the RAM, but that doesn't matter much, depending on what resolution you run at

??
Newegg.com - PNY VCG7900SXPB GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
though i do notice that the EVGA's are out of stock (one was priced at 150.00, but they have one thats like 230.00 lol yeah right!)
this one's only 120 bucks. xfx and foxconn have a couple more that are really pricey.
and for all you guys/girls/w.ever out there....
if you have a 7900gs and it is starting to slow down on new games...
120 bucks will help A LOT.

thats a pretty good deal too, after the rebate only 130 bucks.
i wonder how they overclock...?
its stock clock is higher than i can overclock my 7900's. pperformance-wise, i dont know how it stacks up, but maroon knows his GFX cards, so its probably a good card to consider.
