Rheem vs Bradford White Hot water heater

I initially requested this hot water heater:

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Rheem-Performance-50-gal-Tall-6-Year-42-000-BTU-Power-Vent-Natural-Gas-Water-Heater-XG50T06PV42U0/204318426

but the contractor didn't get the memo and installed this one instead:

http://www.supplyhouse.com/Bradford-White-RG2PV75H6N-75-Gallon-76000-BTU-TTW2-Power-Vent-Energy-Saver-Residential-Water-Heater-Nat-Gas

I have read that a larger hot water heater does not necessarily mean it is more expensive to use if it is very efficient. The efficiency ratings both of these use are confusing. Does anyone know if the Bradford White is efficient enough to be cost about the same monthly as the smaller Rheem? Any other thoughts on the two? thanks
