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
sweet thanks for the info, any brand better then another?
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
