The best deal right now is still the 7900GT.

And why does it suck? Do you have anything to back up that claim or are you just being a fanboy? 256MB wont make much of a difference compared to 512 unless youre running above 1600x1200.

The X1800XT 512 performed marginally better in Anand's testing than a 7800GTX. The loss of 256MB and the fact that the 7900GT is a bit better than the 7800GTX, I'd say they'd be dead even. Only problem is that the X1800 uses a really big cooler compared to the 7900.

Personally, I'd take that XT over the 7900 GT.
Why? The 7900GT will slaughter that...

Depends on which one you buy. Some are at the stock 450MHz and will loose to the X1800 but if you pay a little more for a 550MHz card then ya itll beat the X1800.

Well, Isn't the 7900GT like $399?

Thats $100-less for almost the same performance! How can it NOT be a good deal?
