For in store pick up only.

Looks like a reference model, though pictures can be misleading.

$219.99 - $20 Rebate = $199.99 + Tax

I think the picture is wrong. I haven't seen a reference design for awhile. This might be the one with 2 fans, red pcb and red housing. I got one a few months back and it was the newer revision. So if you should decide to pick one up, make sure you open the box and look at the card before you go home smile.gif

EDIT: One good thing with the newer revision though is it has a small switch and I was able to unlock mine easily smile.gif

I would rather go with the 6950 because of the price. Paying $80 more is not worth the small performance change.

When buying AMD I prefer Ref cards. Never had one that didnt run cool. Especially my Diamond 5870. Nvidia I typically go away from Ref designs. Its a good deal, nice find OP!

I actually have this exact card and they switch to a non reference fan design. Mine has 2 fans on it. However there is a dual bios switch. Mine however would not unlock. Several others have been able to unlock, but be aware they might not unlock and its a non reference design.
