The problem with getting a 6950 reference and then unlocking it is the fact that the memory is slower and the timings are tighter then the 6970's (correct me if I'm wrong) so although you can unlock shadders, it will never be "as good as" the higher priced 6970...

I agree with Kcuestag, two cards would be the best bet, and the performance is there to run 3G monitors in eyefinity if that appeals to you in the future...

Hmmm from everything I read the 6950 was just an underclocked and locked 6970 so I dont have a clue to be honest lol. Kinda like the gtx465s being an underclocked and locked 470. Either way you still save over 200 by getting the 6950s, if you can find em, and performance diff between 2 unlocked 6950s and 2 6970s is going to be splitting percentages lol. Then the other 200 can go elsewhere like a SSD

The only problem with getting 6950's in my country, is they cost about 500 Dollars each

Also, would I still be able to mount my Cooler master V6 onto a Gigabyte p67a-ud4? Also, is there any other motherboards, that can still do crossfire, other than this one? BTW, Money isn't an issue

I'd consider an Asus P8P67 PRO B3.

And yes, as far as I know the V6 has a mounting kit for the 1156 socket, which also works for the 1155.

This may be true, but with regards to the ram and people "Flashing" them into a 6970 has had many repercussions.
I have heard that just unlocking the shaders is fine, but i full flash is bad for the card.

Well, don't worry people, after alot of thinking i've decided to just buy the Case, 6850 , the motherboard and a PSU, if i want to upgrade later i can, because the truth is, at the moment i've actually got about $12,000 dollars, but most of that going towards a Motocross bike

That's a wise choice then.

What PSU are you going for? If you want to be a bit future proof, I'd suggest a Corsair HX850.

Did you get an AM3+ Mobo, to wait for BD?

Ive never heard that and the last Sapphire we flashed is still working great, at well over stock 6970 clocks. I think it could be card dependent. Probably vendor dependent. Since Sapphire, Diamond and Ati/AMD are all so close in the computer world it would make sense that their cards are more apt to flash up? Companies like gigabyte, asus, and xfx that all double dip probably don't have the same stability in their "reference" model. Same thing as Evga and Nvidia.
