Can get a 6950 for less and unlock it. Not that hot, as said.

Not hot, I unlocked my 6950 and get the same performance, and this isn't a great price either

Good price for those that dont want to spend 2 minutes unlocking the shaders of a 6950
(I appreciate many people wont want to start flashing a brand new card, but i assure you a monkey could do the process)
Votes hot for sheer simplicity of cost vs power with no 2 minutes of life watesd modding! ;)

HOT! I cant believe people are saying it is cold because you can buy another card and then run it out of spec to an equaivalent performance.

1) if it then develops a fault it is possible you could have issues with the warranty
2) there are NO guarantees it will work, infact quite a few do not work - I know as i was considering one.
3) does that mean that every high cpu deal is cold becasue you can get another one and overclock it?

I am a great fan of overclocking - i overclock my graphics card and have my 2500K at 4.3ghz but that does not mean that any other deal to come out is cold because i personally got decent legs out of overclocking my stuff.

once you start flashing firmware you are entering a minefield warrantywise (depending on the fault which could develop you may not be able to flash back)

More recent 6950s are not unlocking, including reference design ones. This is a decent deal :)

I was knocking down a shed the other day and found an old newspaper with a computer shop advert boasting about how their £899 PC had a 2GB Hard Drive!! :O

Tempted by this but to be honest my 5850 plays everything well at the moment so I will hold off until the inevitable BF3 upgrade where I will get more for my money.

Hot though!

New 6950 cannot be unlocked all ref cards no longer have bios switch and the single bios cannot be erased.

2GB HDD is not that bad, My 1st PC back in 1996 had 1.2GB HDD and a Inte 166 Mhz CPU for £999.99 ... on it also had a 2MB VGA card only 2D graphics if i remember correctly... Those were the good old days, LoL

Back on Topic: This is a good price for this card, the 6950 is not much cheaper i think its around £205, and i never like over clocking Graphics cards cos i have always had issues... Over clocking Intel Core2 + CPU's is a different matter altogeather, any fool can do it with a little googling and a decent cooler

A word of warning to anyone considering a 6950/6970: the cards are exceptionally long - 27.5cm. Even though the additional power sockets (1 x 6 pin, 1 x 8 pin) are on the top edge of the card once installed, it will tend to impinge on the hard drive cage(s) in anything smaller than (say) a Coolermaster CM690 case.

I have an early edition 6950 that I have flashed with a 6970 BIOS. Performance is equal to a 6970 but as bigmike20vt said in his post and others pointed out, the latest 6950s can't be flashed (well, not safely, anyway) and this is a good price for a 6970.

Voted hot.

I am getting this instead, much shorter (in my case I can fit 27cm long stuff and this one is overclocked & is shorter than MSI or AMD version since it's just 26.7cm).

You would think at £12k they could throw the postage in FOC
