I assume you mean that a 7900GT is an overclocked 7900GS.

It is not just an overclocked version. The GT has 4 more pipelines as well.

they help produce more pixels.. when looking at nvidia now 24 compaired to 20. It's a big difference because your multiplying that by something.. lol, i don't quiet remember, but the gt is way more than an overclocked 7900gs.

Which is why the 7800 series was way better than the 6800 series.. because 16 pipelines compaired to 20 and 24

means more piplines to render the game, but i have a 7900gs and it plays all current games on high setttings. I would go with a 7900gs and get a g80 card for christmas, but if you just plan to upgrade to a gpu that will last you a while longer, go for the 7900gt. And if you can wait, get the 7900gto when it's back in stock. That should last you a while.

no, the 7900GT just has 4 more pipes, and 1 more vertex shader.

just look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...Force_7_series

7900GT has the same stock speeds as 7900GS


This is ^^ a fake benchmark, because single 7900GT, 7900GTX and X1900xtx were performing better than 7950GX2, and thats wrong.

The 7950GX2 should beat them all
