From what I've read, at stock the X1900GT is around the same ballpark as the 7900GT, but the 7900GT overclocks better. I would go for the X1900 GT because it's cheaper, it can do HDR+AA, and if your into Oblivion ATI cards play them great. You could wait untill X1950 XT/X cards are out and/or G80/R600 come out; that way prices will drop and more powerful cards will be out.

Thats got to be the most poorly constructed run-on sentence I've read in a while.

*Re-worded in an easier to read fashion*

*I'm pretty sure the 7900GT beats the X1900GT, becauseit's slower then the X1900XT, and that is the 7900GT's direct competitor. The 7900GT is on a different performance level, and you won't get a 7950 GX2 for the same price as a 7900 GT (and that is Canadian dollars). I know because I just bought a 7900GT; I'm very satisfied, other then it being defected.*

The X1900 XT is not the direct competitor of the 7900GT. A X1900 XT/X blows the 7900GT out of the water. The X1900GT is it's competitor.
