Go for whats faster now and then sell the 7900GS later and get like an 8800GTS if you really want DX10.

First: 8600GTS can beat X1950pro in many games like STALKER and oblivion, so I say that they are pretty equal in term of performance.

Second: I was comparing stock 7900GS to stock 8600GT

Third: If you want to talk about overclocking then both 8600GT and GTS can be overclocked at very high speed.

In this website they were able to overclock 8600GTS core to 1GHz !!! (But you need to voltmode it)

The 7900GS can be voltmodded and overclocked from 450-750+ on the core as well so don't think they both don't overclock very well.

The 8600GTS and 7900GS are pretty much the same speed when overclocked with the 8600GTS still being slightly better in a few things however being 1/4th more in price.

When it comes down to the GT the 7900GS if you just want speed will beat the GT version in pretty much every benchmark.
