    GTX will always be faster, but I feel that for the price, the GT is good enough. It just depends on how much you want to spend.

    Also, I prefer XFX, EVGA, and BFG for the 78 series, but others may feel differently.

    Yes get the leadtek, it is the same card. BFG makes great cards but they are way overpriced IMHO. I have a Leadtek and it is fine.
