I'll be upgrading from FX5200 to 7900GT, volt mod and OC. Ppl has been getting 7900GTX speeds so i think 7900GT is best.

If you can afford the extra $50 to $60 it's worth getting the 7900GT. There is nothing wrong however with the GS. There is also the 7950GT that is more than the GS but less than the GT. All are good!!

The 7900GS will perform just as good as a 7900GT, they overclock amazingly.

That is the card I am looking at as well. The GT does have the extra 4 pixel pipes though so with good oc'ing it should get to GTX speeds.

Honest|y, in game you will not be able to tell the difference in game from a 7900gs to a 7900gt, I have them both, and they get right around the same fps.
