Default X1900GT, better value than the 7900GT?

Selling for around £120 at Overclockers, around £30-80 less than a 7900GT depending on which variant; and with reviews putting it on par in most areas with the 7900GT, is the x1900GT better value for money?

Has anyone had any experiences with this card? Thoughts?

If you overclock, then the 7900GT would probably be the better option. I don't know how well the X1900GT overclocks. If no overclocking is involved, then definitally the X1900GT for that kind of money.

i'm pretty sure you have to voltmod to get the 7900GT to beat the x1900... even then i've seen an article that calculates the output of a 7900 if you oc it vs. ocing a x1900... the x1900 will still beat the oc'ed 7900 according to the article... this is just hearsay though

Are you sure you're talking about the same card as me? I'm talking about the x1900GT

God you're difficult to understand :P Anyway, he wasn't talking about the 7950GX2, he was talking about the 7950GT that I believe is coming out in a short while.
