the 7900gt is better. i was under the impression the x1800xt was to compete with the 7800gt/gtx not 7900gt. the 7900gt's counterpart is the x1900

they are both very good cards and personally i would choose the 7900GT over the X1800XT because of the heating and noise X1800XT has

Um...the 7900GT is basically a 7800GTX...

Go for the 7900GT. It's side-by-side with the X1800XT, no real winner. But Nvidia has less issues, so there ya go. 7900GT.

7900gt I'd say. Top of the line performance and better drivers than ATI.
