GNS3 will accept a VXR image if I recall correctly. The VXR had more "options" in the software and supported more stuff. The 7200 was for the enterprise market and the 7200VXR for service providers.

I haven't touched a 7200VXR router since 2007, so I'm not 100% sure though!

Yes, you are correct. To take it a step further there is a 7206vxr and a 7206ubr. The difference is that typically the vxr model will terminate pppoe/atm/dialup/ect. where as the ubr will terminate cable modem plants.

So long as the image filename is listed on GNS3's supported IOS images, it should work without an issue - regardless of whether you downloaded it from the 7206 or the 7206VXR page.
