Would practicing along to power tab have the same effect as practicing with a metronome?

If you just turn on the metronome and use that as your click track, then yes. However, practicing along to something playing in PT will not help your timing as much; you will still rely on hearing the riff played rather than just mastering the timing.

But the PT click track is just as good as a metronome.
