the 7900GT is no longer sold by e-tailers, but it has 24 pixel pipelines vs the 7900GS' 20. Both overclock extremely well. The 7900GS, performance wise, is basically a very overclockable 7800GT, whereas the 7900GT is like a very overclockable 7800GTX.

7900gs > 7900gt (well only if the gs is vmodded and the gt is stock)

The max OC of both is about the same performance wise

I had a couple 7900 GS's in my last system. The GS is just a slightly underclocked GT from my understanding, and as said above 4 less pixel pipelines.
