Which method do you plan to use? RBE, Wizzards script, or a 6970 bios?

I haven't even thought that far ahead, but mostly I'd flash it first. I'll have that computer together on Monday, so I'll know soon.

Use rbe. Backup yer stock bios. Then mod it with RBE. You can up the voltage too via gpu registers. Then use racerx mod to increase the overclock limits and you never have to use the bug ridden Afterburner since it never works right on crossfired radeons.

I am actually downgrading from dual 2GB 6950's to a single Asus Matrix GTX580. Partly because I downgraded from 3x24" eyefinity to a single 30" display, but also partly because my unlocked reference 6950's are good sellers right now and I like to try new hardware. I got $280 + shipping for my first card on eBay, which is what I paid last December for it and I should sell my other soon. I got a good deal on an almost new Matrix for $400 shipped, so overall I am losing performance, but I think it should hold me over until the next gen cards come out and I will stash the $150-ish I pocket on the downgrade to assist in purchasing something new come December or whenever they are released.

I tested with a single OC'd unlocked 2GB 6950 at 2560x1600 at what I consider to be an acceptable level of detail/AA in several games. Only a couple fell below 30fps average. Once I get the GTX 580 tomorrow, I will run the same tests and compare how much performance I gained. I am hoping with OC, I can gain 20% which should be enough to make me happy for now.
