Overclocking and unlocking are both very important to get the most for my money.

I have a 6950 2GB unlocked to 6970 shaders and I love it. A lot of overclocking headroom and its a beast in games. The 2GB of Vram is essential for 1920x1080 nowadays.

Battlefield 3 uses over a GB on max settings I believe.
