I unlocked to the 6970 Full Bios How long Will that Last me For?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey i was wondering i been thinking so hard about this because i want this card to last me a long time and my temps are not bad at all im just nervous ill lose a great card on teh long run. How much difference is the STock 6950 To the 6970 Bios Just for Gaming i dont care about benchmarking i just care about gaming.

I was gaming and i get around 60c all the time no higher just when i make videos with Fraps and when my ac is turned on at night. Should i go back to stock Bios or just go with the Shader unlocked i just want my card to last me someone please answer my question.

Remember Just Gaming.
My Core is at 880 and My Mem is at 1375 Right now.
