Default 7900GS versus 7900GT ......

OK OK.....finally im am deciding to upgrade my AGP mobo to pci-e......
anyways....ive been hearing all the hype about the 7900gs and the OC ability and what not, seems to be a great deal. But, i did find a heck of a deal on a 7900GT(4 extra pipes).....so i need yalls opinnion on whih one is worth it...... heres the two cards- basically a 15$ difference.....

I would go with the GT faster core clock and more pipe lines equal better performance which is a good deal for only a $15 difference.

Yea I would get the 7900GT. You can also check the 7950GT, for $15 more, and rebate will make it $200:

7900GT, u cant oc it as high as the GS, but it is a bettter card at lower clock speeds. if you have a voltmeter, the volt mod is a cinch, i would recommend getting a zalman vf900 and voltmodding for the full potential

The 7950GT is better. Not a bad price either.
