Default Video card suggestion.

My x1600pro is really getting me frustrated, and i hope to get a new one soon. I was gona test out Nvidia, and i want a good card for under 200 $$ (no fancy dx10 crap, that will be my next card ) I was looking at these two cards.

one is a newer module, but less clock speeds, should i get one of those, or get a different one? (btw, no ATI, i wana try Nvidia.)

EDIT: oh yeah, im not looking at SLi either, just one video card.

i would go with the dvga 7900. but just wondering, have you ever thought of gettting a videocard that supports dx10. thats what i am doing and i'm hoping i only have to wait until march or something. and i will not get the 8800, even though it supports dx10 its wayyyy too expensive.
