Just Bought These....

Whattaya think. Opted for these (bought 2) because Visiontek does reference designs and also lifetime warranty. Can I expect a vast improvement as opposed to single 5770 I am running now? Also, does anyone know if these still unlock to 6970's? Thanks guys and gals.

Vast improvement compared to a single 5770 is an understatement.

You will need to read the 6950 to 6970 thread. I am not up on if they will all unlock or not.

Haha, thanks Moe, and very well put. I know it'll be an improvement, obviously going from 5xxx series to Xfired 6xxx series. Can't wait. Still curious if they will unlock though. That'll be the win for me.

Visiontek are defintely not a popular choice, but they still should work.
There are a few 6950 that are $259-$269 range after rebate....any reason why you decided to go with the Visiontek?

HIS is $259AR. Good success with flash according to:

Yea, reference PCB and most importantly Lifetime warranty. XFX has it too but few too happy with XFX RMA and don't wanna risk it.


Thanks DaRookie. Hopefully I have the same success.
