I was hoping closer to 180 shipped. Why did they drop so much?

This, you could try and unlock it if it has a BIOS switch? Because you'd probably get $10-$20 more for having a guaranteed 6970 basically.

Mainly because the hd 7000 series overclock pretty well and a 7850 is around $160 + tax

The second reason would be the warranty. I believe msi does have a transferable warranty (or you need to assist in the RMA). But given that fact, this card has had a portion of it's warranty used up so to speak.

I've been looking on CL so that I can crossfire, but no one wants to let go of a ~$250 card for $140-$150.

My $0.02

It is indeed a Twin Frozr III Power Edition. Purchased 8/19/11. So half of the three year warranty is used. Going to test if it can unlock now.

^this. 140-150$ is the top amount you'll get for it here in OCN. Perhaps more locally?
