Some are capable, some arent. But there is no gaurantee it will work. Be on the safe side and run it as a stock 6950 or buy a 6970. If you dont have any experience with GPU BIOS's then dont even try. Most likely youll brick your vid card.

Ill reiterate what I said above. And I wouldnt trust a YouTube video for anything. If you dont know what you are doing, leave it be or buy a 6970. Some can be unlocked, some cant. There is no gaurantee and if it bricks it, theres a good possiblity you wont be able to RMA it. Id be surprise if anyone gave you tips here, but they may.

How could anyone know the possible FPS youd get? You never posted your system specs. Even with them, who knows. The 6950 is overkill at your resolution for just about any game.
