Well best bang for buck is 6950 reference in CF. Even if not unlocked they destroys 560 in SLI.

I can't get the 6950, that's pushing my limit way to high.

I know, it was just an answer to someone else But staying on topic, You should get GTX 560Ti insted of 5870. Both are great cards, but 560 has bigger OC potential and scales better in SLI than 5870 in CF.

All reference HD 6950 have about a good 95% chance of Unlocking so you got a 95% chance. And for a price of $235 I'd definitely go for it.

Thinking about it buying one now since I'm running Eyefinity or waiting until next year for 7XXX or 6XX(If 6XX can run Multi-Monitors with one GPU)

Edit: I'd figured I'd post the guide in-case you decide to buy it.
http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/...ng/vidcard/159 URL even show's test results for the cards tested.

You ain't kiddin! I've hit over 1.5GB vram usage already at 1440p.

If you ever plan to game above 1080p, you'll want to invest in a card with more than 1GB vram.

Indeed, that ATI for $242 (don't forget shipping) would do very well.

If I was to start over I wouldn't be able to afford it (only paid $185 for my 470 - was looking at 460's cause thats all I could afford)...


That said the 6950 is a great card and if it unlocks +1 to you, the performance on the ATI cards are really good for the price. I haven't had a ATI card since it was still owned by ATI, but I hear they have driver issues which would suck but I can't speak on that as I have no experience with it.


Also I wouldn't touch a 1gb card even at lowly 1080p, games are starting to use a lot of ram. I'm pretty sure I've already maxed out my vram in DA2.
