i personally prefer sapphire to HIS. I do know sapphire has 2year warranty on their cards (atleast in Australia)

dont know about the HIS one's

The saphire toxic is a much better card, It has a switch on the card that turns it into a fully functional 6970, no JOKE

I don't know what pricing is like where you are but if these are the cards you are looking at the toxic is a way better card, Really without a joke or need to do anything risky you flip a switch and voila you have a 6970.

But it seems that with that toxic card, at 6950 settings when overclocked it will even be better than the 6970, So if you can get it for the same price as the others the toxic is a crazy good card, Lots of options with that card, it is actualy super awesome..

Well it's because of the 6970 unlock that you the Sapphire Toxic. Otherwise, a 6950 1GB would do fine or any 6950 for that matter.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the HIS.

But if you want to unlock your 6950 to get 6970's shaders--then the Sapphire Toxic is the way to go.

No it seems you are misunderstanding, there is a switch like a light switch on the card you flip the little switch and it is a fully functional 6970. Seriously it sounds too good to be true but it isn't. The card has a dual bios you can switch the bios between the two versions using a switch as described above, There is absolutey no unlock or risk, just flip the switch as easy as turning on the lights
