7800 Gs Oc >? 7950 ?

Today I went to bestbuy and I saw my card (7800 GS OC) was priced 350$ or so and the 7950 was like 200$. Shouldn't the 7950 be more expensive and better....please explain to me why the 7800 is better or why its a higher price then the 7950....Thx

    The 7800 GS OC is not a stock card. BFG over clocked it (OC) and probably gave it more and faster memory than the stock card. The company then turned around and sold the modified card for a profit. Since you are no longer comparing two stock cards from the same company, one doesn't have to be priced according to quality.

    It would be the 7950. The typical 7800 GS OC was agp, 7950 is a PCI-E. The newer PCI-E cards are cheaper than a agp card. Just goto www.tomshardware.com for benchmarks.
