XFX 7900GT, same core clock speed, and with the money you save buy a VF700-CU and overclock that mem so you can match it

I really like eVGA. That is a good, solid card. Their "Step-Up" program is nice.

get the eVGA KO, the signature series is nice, but not worth the extra $80 for only 20 mhz

They KO has a much better heat sink, runs cooler... better for overclocking.
