In then end, they seem to be about the same... I would get whatever is the cheapest, which probably would be the GS...

The GT seems to be scoring higher on the higher resolutions.

Okay fine, then get the GT!

Here is one review from Anandtech that I read.
http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2593&p=1

at 1600x1200, its like a whopping at most, 1-2 fps difference. Most likely you'll want to use them around the 1024-1280 range anyways, to get good fps (imo, closer to 60 than 30)

If you wait a little longer, all that would be left, will be the 6800GS.. since according to Anadtech, the whole 6800 line will be phased out except for the GS.

6800 GS is newer, more advanced, the GT is more powerful by nature, it has 4 more pipes, i'd get the GT

They generally use the same core, so no, its not more advanced. The GT has 4 more pipes, and the GS has a higher core clock to offset the gains. In most games/benchmarks, they trade blows, but are generally within 1-2fps of each other. They're near clones in performance, and the GS is cheaper. The GS is also an unbelievable OCer, not sure on the GT in that regard myself.

The AGP GS is clocked the same as the GT, so if you're limitied to AGP, get a GT instead. For PCI-E, get whatever you find to be cheaper, which is usually the GS.
