PX8600 GT TDH or EVGA 7800 GT?

I was looking for some opinions on my vid card choices. This doesn't involve purchases, actually, so it's not a matter of what to spend cash on. I have a EVGA 7800 GT on my home system, while on my work system I popped in an Leadtek Winfast PX8600 GT TDH. I can easily swap them around if I wanted but after doing my usual research it seemed like they were about on par. However, running games on the 8600 seemed a bit smoother with things jacked up, so I was curious if anyone has had the chance to compare two similar cards. Otherwise any other input would be appreciated. ;)

    I think that the 8600 is less efficient at everything except DX10 stuff, which the 7800 just doesn't do, but I'm guessing drivers would make the biggest difference between the two...

    The benchmarks tend to favor the 7800GT, but it's less than a 5% difference. The 8800GT, on the other hand, blows them both away.
