Hate to revive this thread, but my PC's been down for a bit. So, a 6950 would be worth the extra cash? If so, should I run with the 1 gb form or the 2gb form? I've read that the 2gb can be modified to a 6970 more easily than the 1gb.
Also, as a sidenote, I'm thinking of upping the ram in this unit--From the current 6 gbs to, perhaps, 24 gbs of this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231359
Figure I can sell the ram I have for around 50 on ebay, if I'm lucky. I'm going to have some cash to put into my PC, and am trying to think of some upgrades I may need before going head first into this 3D art major. Would this be a worthwhile investment?
