not every GS overclocks to GT speeds. You could get a dud, and then it doesn't seem like such a good deal anymore does it.. btw, we're talking about 7900 series cards..
The 7900GS makes buying the 7600GT a bad idea because it offers near double performance for $30 more.
Please read more carefully next time.
Also, stock to stock, the 7900GS is about 6-7% slower than the 7900GT. I can't justify an additional $80 for a 6-7% increase....
we are all comparing 7900 to 7900. We all know a 7900gs is a much much better buy than a 7"600" GT. I'm sorry I though it was a typo, I didn't think someone would state something that obvious.
the current price diffrence from GS to GT is 25 bucks..
the price diffrence of a GS to GTO is $50
a 7900GS to a 7950GT KO is almost $80
oh and actually the diffrence from 7600GT to 7900GS is about $70
check some place like new egg if you don't believe me
Actually, last time I checked, the 7600GT ran for about $130...and the 7900GS for $160.
Now it seems that the 7600GT has dropped in price....and the 7900GS has a little as well. Most 7600GT's are going for ~ $100-$120, and most GS's are going for about $145-$160. So I don't see where you are getting $70 from.
I also fail to see a 7900GT under $200. So the difference in price is substantially more than 25 bucks.
Also, the GTO is very, very hard to find. Most places it is no longer in stock, and is rumored to be a canceled card.
