TOXIC >>> FLEX ... detailed enough ? smile.gif

But seriously do a search there's SO MUCH info about the TOXIC's in several threads here I'm sure people are sick of seeing it, They really are GREAT CARDS.

As for the Sapphire FLEX, it's a FINE card, but the only reason I'd see to buy one over the Sapphire DIRT3 or Sapphire TOXIC edition 6950 card's is if you want to run the ATI/AMD EyeFinity off a SINGLE CARD and not buy an expensive DisplayPort monitor or any extra DisplayPort convertor adapters to do so. The FLEX allows you to use low-cost DVI monitors for all three screens. Otherwise it's not an Un-Lockable, or highly OverClockable PERFORMANCE type card like the TOXIC is.

I'd personally recommend the TOXIC. Unlocked with just a flick of a switch for me and in general the unlock rate seems quite high. It also overclocks quite nicely as well.

Purple Text is REALLY annoying but I agree with Kings, I'm just waiting for a good opportunity to buy a second 6950 2gb Dirt 3 Edition.

Doesn't unlock shaders, but has a good quiet cooler and overclocks nicely. Although I haven't been able to go past the build in locks in CCC.

IMO you have to justify the increased cost of the Toxic but they are both great cards. Flex isn't really necessary but can be useful.

IT DOES UNLOCK, or at least CAN, or did you just mean your's didn't, the DIRT3 card has the same BIOS switch, so it's possible to unlock the shaders on it as well.

The TOXIC w/ MIR is $270 + FREE Shipping ... the DIRT3 is $245 + $8 to Ship ... I think it's rather easy to justify the $17 difference personally smile.gif

And in jackoboy9's case in Europe the TOXIC was CHEAPER than the FLEX card ... it's a NO BRAINER in my book wackosmiley.gif

Well it's certainly one of the BETTER ways to go, and one I'd recommend, but there are other options, DIRT3 edition, MSI PE/OC TwinFrozrIII, GTX-560ti 2GB ... etc. you get the idea smile.gif

Not sure what you're trying to get at here ? and honestly what's it matter ? as the Price is what it is.

Meaning what I maybe bought it for a Month and a half ago in the USA, isn't what YOU can get it for TODAY in CANADA or EUROPE ... as an example wink.gif I know I've read in EUROPE they're charging more for the TOXIC card than they should be for some reason, more than other brands of HD-6950's, so I don't know what's going on with that. Maybe you can LINK us the site you were going to buy from and we can see the prices of the graphics cards there. smile.gif

But in the end ... all you can do is go by what your options are in front of you at the time you want to buy it. thumb.gif
