[Amazon] MSI HD 6950 2GB - $245 shipped AR

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 


Amazon has the MSI HD6950 2GB for $270 - $25 rebate = $245, free shipping

Pretty much the cheapest 2GB 6950 I could find. MSI warranties are tied to the serial number so you can sell it and the next owner will still have coverage



MSI Radeon HD 2 GB DDR5 256 Bit PCI Express 2.0 x 16 Graphics Card R6950-2PM2D2GD5

Is this card bios unlockable to a 6970? If so, sweet deal.

It's the 2GB version using the reference PCB so theoretically it should unlock. But there are rumors of ATI working on a newer 6950 revision that permanently locks the shaders

As far as i know latest reference msi 69xx cards have no backplate and no bios switch, I know cause friend of mine got one of those msi 6970s (supposedly reference)with described above flaws, so i'd check that first.

Sapphires have been less than stellar overclock wise.

I jumped on the XFX one here. It unlocked fine. For $15 more, double lifetime warranty is definitely worth it.

in b4 xfx hate. reference models are all the same.
