GT pwns the GS. If you vmod it, there's no competition close AT ALL in that price or anywhere around it.

The GS is a great deal if you can find it for a about $150....in the $200 price range, the x1900GT/x1950PRO is your best bet.

I wouldn't even bother with the 7600GT.....the GS costs a few bucks more, and is almost twice as good.

Fatal, did you get the GS and GT switched up becuase I thought the GS was a little cheaper than the GT.

So basically Nvidia biased people are saying go GT while ATI people are saying the x1950pro? If I were to voltmod the GT how would it stack up against the ATI?

I heard a few of you saying eVGA on the GT. Are they better then the XFX GT's? What if the XFX has a little higher stock clock speed, would you still suggest the eVGA over it?

Thanks for all the info guys.

The stock clock speeds on the card don't really matter much since I assume you are going to be overclocking the card anyway. The 7900GS can be voltmodded just like the 7900GT in order to achieve high overclocks. On stock voltage the 7900GS is the best overclocker of the bunch. So basically it comes down to how much you want to spend and if you want to do a volt mod or not. If you don't want to do a volt mod but are going to spend around $200 get a x1950pro. Get the 7900GS if you want to keep the costs down.

Do you guys have any links for the x1950pro? I couldnt really find one that was around 200 bucks. I must have been looking at the wrong model.

What do you think about the eVGA GT (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130033) versus the GS link that was posted above?

The GT is faster but it costs more. A 7900GS can be overclocked on stock voltage to have performance above 7900GT that however is with the XFX extreme 7900GS as it has a different PCB. Sorry I linked you the wrong card before.

The GS is about 6-7% slower than the GT. They both overclock the same, and can both be volt modded. However, I don't see the GT having enough performance gain over the GS to justify an additional $50-$60. The 7900GS is much faster than a 7600GT. Its comparable in performance to the older 7800GTX (but only 20 pipelines like the 7800GT).

I wouldn't consider volt modding a card just because:
a) It voids your warrenty
b) can kill your card
c) decreases the lifespan of your card

For $150 go for the 7900GS. For $200 go for the x1900GT/x1950PRO (essentially the same thing).

Personally, I don't like factory overclocked cards because they tend to have more problems. Reference speed cards tend to overclock better than factory overclocked cards anyway.

I'd get the X1950Pro since I'm an ATI fanboy. You can't complain about the image quality you get from one though!

for $230 you can get this 1950PRO, i hear its better then the 7900GT, but that could have been a fanboy talking, not sure who it was.
