AGAIN, i could be wrong, but as far as I've seen for multiple sites when the 1gb variants did release (quite a few months back) there was no unlock availble.

SLI wasn't really an option as that requires a new psu too.

I didn't buy a 2gb version as this was a 2nd hand buy going cheap, last minute decision type thing. I know the 2gb is better for aa etc but I'm only gaming at 1920. Although I would have liked to be able to try eyefinity tho

Its factory overclocked to 830mhz so should be ok out the box. I don't mind if it isn't a big upgrade, just hopefully there is some difference. As I said before, after I sell some redundant bits it pays for itself.

Well guys I gotta say that Im very impressed with my upgrade.

The first thing I did was whacked the settings up to ultra on BF3 and it runs fine, nice and smooth, and a noticeable improvement over the 460.

Then I realised my card had a bios switch so had a look into unlocking the shaders and bingo.......

1536 shaders unlocked.

Couldn't be happier
