Default xfx or evga

hey im looking at buying a 7900gt but im looking at two cards

evga 7900 gt
core clock - 500 mhz
memory clock - 1500mhz

xfx 7900 gt
core clock 550 mhz
memory clock - 1630 mhz

now the xfx card seems like the obvious choice however i have had people tell me that xfx isnt very good. what would you do ?

xfx cause i have 2 great cards from them.

xfx geforce 6600 256mb and xfx geforce 6800 xtreme.

but the one your getting sounds like its alot better than mine.

For gaming don't get anything less than the xfx geforce 6600 256mb.
