Ehh. I wouldn't even bother with the headache of finding a card that can actually be unlocked and then under going the BIOS flashing. A 6970 with a good cooler will work significantly better in the long run.

its been working perfectly for me for the past 9 months, saving me the 100 smackers that the 6970 would of cost me and I got mine from Amazon, its not a headache to find its actually pretty easy just need to make sure its a R6950 (the R stands for Reference), anyhow if the SIMPSONATOR wants to read about it heres a link to the mod instructions.
