7900GT > 7800GTX ~= X1800XT
I didn't say they ARE the same. They are very close. On stock settings the 7900GT has a slight advantage over the 7800GTX (256MB). However, when comparing the 7900GT to the 7800GTX (512MB), the 7800GTX wins.
Now, this is not to say the 7800GTX is the better deal. It's not. It's over $400 for this card, and less than $300 for the 7900GT.
