Technically you can bios flash any 1gb card if you hack the bios chip, gum mod that thing.

Well, I just traded my GTX 580 1.5GB for 6950 1GB + $265 Paypal, was it a good deal? I mean I won't be gaming on anything higher than 1080 so 1GB is plenty?

Depends on what you can get for selling the 1GB HD-6950


But honestly if YOU are satisfied with it and feel it suits YOUR needs then it really doesn't matter what any of US think, now does it ?

That sounds like a pretty awesome trade to me.

I mean Amazon is selling it for 240 rebate... GTX 580 is probably 400-450 (I had it at $406 highest bid on it on eBay but canceled after we did the deal) I'm going to keep this card because I was going to buy a GTX 295 for around the same price anyways...
