I woulden't say that...
The x1900XTX is only a little better than the 7900GTX, if you were running a rig with either a 7900GTX or x1900XTX and played games on it without knowing which card the rig had in it, you woulden't be able to tell the difference unless you checked.
But the 7900GTX is hard to come by because Nvidia didn't make enough G71's.
I say it all comes down to avalibility and price, and it looks like the XTX wins both of those categories.
Also, there is no need to volt mod the x1900XTX, unlike the 7900GTX, because the x1900 series cards have built in voltage controll, which is great for overclocking. Personally, I haven't touched the voltages on my card, but I'm sure I could get a lot higher if I did. ANother thing: ATI drivers have Overclocking tools built into the drivers, unlike Nvidia where you need a 3rd party reg tweak.
