Default Evga 7600gt or Sapphire x850 xt

I have been looking at benchies of the two cards and the price. They are fairly close in price and they perform fairly close in games. I bet the 7600 oc's better than the x850 xt. Can anyone tell me anymore about both cards and which would be better?

I would go with 7600gt because it supports SM3.0, it uses less power and it is more overclockable.

You can get eVGA 7600GT for $112.99
