X1800GTO or 7900GT ?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!
Building a new computer and just have the graphic card left to choose. My original choice was the XFX7900GT which is quite pricy from my point ov view but due to its overclocking abilities. No im wondering since the X1800GTO is unlockable to a X1800XL would it be able to match the 7900GT ? Which card would be the best and how big would the difference be ?

It has to be said that the 7900 will be better than the X1800GTO so i would get the 7900 mate.
