What 6950 to get

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I m planing to go tri-fire I have a triple screen setup. However this means I need duel slot cards. On scans web site it shows the ASUS directcu2 6950 as a duel slot card but i think it's a three slot, I ve seen the power colour on ebuyer at a good price. I also noticed that the ASUS card can t be unlocked(not sure if that's true?). So is the power colour card my best bet?. Want a better than stock cooler

Tri fire 6950's!? tasty!

Make sure to post pics.

Dont quote me on this but im pretty sure the asus card you were talking about is 3pci slots.

Looked into a 6990?

Ive heard great things about 6990+6970/6950 CF set up. just something to think about if you have the $ to spring.

Do you want to unlock? If so, get a 6950 reference 2GB.

U can't unlock the Asus DCII. Just get a reference one with bios switch. I personally prefer Asus/Gigabyte/Sapphire brand myself. The only card that can be unlocked without the stock cooler is the Twin Frorz III afaik.

I looked at the ASUS card and the MSI online and didn't see a BIOS switch on either card.

How do you like that card? Really thinking about getting it... unlockable bios right? Does it stay cool and pretty quiet as well?
