Default Should I buy a 8800 GT or GTS

Ok, set price aside. Which should I buy for gaming?
8800 gt or 8800 gts?

8800 gt's are incredibly hard to find.... >.<

get the gts g92, because of the popularity of the GT its price has increased big time from its original price, the difference is worth it then

The GTS is selling for MSRP and the GT is selling for 50-70 OVER MSRP. I just upgraded from SLI GT to SLI GTS and im going to sell my GT cards. The cooling solution alone is worth the extra 30-40 bucks more over the cost of a GT
