I think Ghostview has the idea of a 72 DPI resolution screen. It 
probably depends on the printer's resolution whether the PS file is 
chosen to have 300, 600, 1200 DPI resolution. Preview knows about the 
actual screen resolution and does not count in pixels but in 
dimensions, i.e. it tries to display a document at 90, 100, 300 % of 
its actual size.

I remember that you can set MacGhostview to display a document at 288 
DPI. This will bring you the Preview like view.
