I recently got a 6950 which was the twin frozr ii, which couldn't even run games, it would just turn black and the driver would restart and what not, tried old drivers and didn't make a difference, ended up taking it back.
It would also freeze and reset within windows for no reason too.
I have been able to play games. I have tried metro 2033 on it which i am sure it out performs the GTX460 (but not by too much) on max. This may be a driver issue like the others said, so i will be trying that.

Yea Steak I RMA'd my 6950 because of all the lockups.

ok so i used driver sweeper to get rid of both nvidia (except for physx) and AMD drivers, then i installed 11.2 and made sure not to update to 11.5.. it is working much better now! I see minecraft cap out at 90 or so and average at 80 which is already a pretty big improvement, going to go check out some other games.

Still not sure if video bug is still there, however upon start-up i received a prompt from flash player to update so maybe its fixed!

edit: NVM averaging 300 in minecraft now

I was about to say?! Getting 90 and 80 in Minecraft? WAAAAY to low.

Seems like you got everything resolved now though. Congratulations.

Driver issue for sure. Even more of a problem when switching brands to ATI too.

Did you uninstall the old drivers? The hd6950 should be way faster than the gtx460 unless your card was heavily overclocked. Then they should be close.
