Accessories like what? The useless minidp to dp cable?

PowerColor

The cooler is so much quieter

The downside is you get more hot air in your case

If you want a good shot at unlocking, you need a version 1 card. I got my HIS from amazon a few weeks back and it was version 1.

If you're lucky to find an old stocked 2Gb card (non-revised) then go for that and unlock the shaders. Otherwise get a 1GB model with a custom cooler (Asus DCII or Gigabyte Windforce3x, MSI Frozr just to name a few).
