I use circs exclusively now that I have my needlemaster. But I still have all my straights. I should probably get rid of them I guess, but they have sentimental value - they are the needles that I used to learn knitting. *sigh.
If your knitting in the round, and not flat then you gauge is will most likely be different than if you were knitting flat with the same yarn and needles. Whether it knits to a looser or tighter gauge is different for everyone. You are just going to have to swatch and see for yourself. For me, my gauge becomes a bit more loose when I knit in the round.
