post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have $310 in newegg gift cards and a little more in my checking account. Could you guys give me some advice, is the 6970 worth it? I will be running boinc 24/7 on it. Thanks guys, sorry for such a short post.

I would say get a 6950 and unlock the shaders and OC it to the 6970 performance yourself and save the money.

Unless you plan on OCing the 6970 itself by a considerable amount, because the 6970 will have more head room for a OC than a unlocked 6950 will.

I would choose the 6950

+1 for the 6950 and unlock shaders.

OCing this card doesn't really do much for me in terms of FPS, though.

If you are planning on OCing it at least more than 15-20% over stock speeds I would suggest a 6970 because of the different RAM (speeds or timings, not sure which one it is) used in the 6950 and 6970. So you will be able to get a more stable OC with a 6970.
