Buy the ati hd 6950 2gb stocker and flash the bios with the hd 6970 bios to unlock the cards full potential. I own a hd 6970 2gb nothing less than the gtx 580 can compare really awesome card.Overclocks really well.Totally smashes the fps.Saving up for my second card couple more weeks to go

I have only used sapphire for ati cards and have never had a problem make sure u use a stock ati hd 6950 2GB reference card with the blow out the rear cooling setup as some of the dearer cards dont flash to 6970.I rin my 6970 @1000 gpu. 1.200 v. 1475 memory
