I own/have owned Goretex, Goretex XCR and Goretex Pro Shell jackets. When I ski the bumps mid-winter (too cold for pit zips to be open) on top I usually wear a silk turtleneck, a merino wool crewneck, a 200 wt. fleece pullover and a shell. When I get back to the lodge, the inside of the shell is always clammy (regardless of the variety of Gore Tex I'm wearing--even the very newest stuff) but I am bone dry (and, thus, warm) because there are three layers between the (clammy) inside of the shell and my skin. My point is, it doesn't matter that there is condensation on the inside of the shell if it's not making you uncomfortable.
However, it sounds like you're talking about a situation where (1) you're engaging in more aerobic activity than I usually do (like touring), or (2) you're talking about warmer conditions. In those circumstances, an eVent shell might be an option (an eVent hard shell is more breathable than any variety of Gore Tex, but requires more frequent washing to maintain breathability). You should also consider wearing a softshell. I wear my Arcteryx Hercules hoody (made from highly breathable Polartec Powershield O2 softshell fabric and lined with fur-like fleece) even in mid winter, so long as it isn't windy (the jacket is, at best, moderately wind resistant). In below to near-freezing conditions when I can wear the Hercules instead of a hard shell, I never experience condensation buildup. As the weather gets warmer (or my activities become more aerobic) I turn to lighter/less insulated soft shell jackets. I have found that (except for the Polartec Powershield O2, which has a very porous membrane) I prefer the "woven" variety of softshell to the "membrane" variety of softshell, because the woven jackets are less likely to trap moisture. "Membrane" type softshell jackets include jackets made with Gore Windstopper or Polartec Powershield. "Woven" softshell jackets include TNF Apex Bionic softshell and jackets made with a variety of softshell fabrics manufactured by Schoeller (Mammut and Cloudveil tend to use Schoeller fabrics). The best option of all can be a wind-resistant fleece like Polartec Windpro (not Polartec Windbloc; Windbloc has a membrane and is similar to Gore Windstopper). Fleece is extremely breathable; far more breathable than your hardshell, even with the pit zips open.

Good luck making your choice.
