people keep banging on about unlocking the shaders on an 6950 to make it a 6970.
e.g. here;
http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/overclocking/vidcard/159
making this hot:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/msi-radeon-hd-6950-2gb-amd-ati-graphics-card-189-23-delivered-scan/897806

reading the article it shows that overclocking makes more difference than unlocking the shaders.

the 480 stock is as quick as the 6970 (for £70 less) and quicker than the 6950 (for £6 more).

the 480 has more overhead of further overclocking and comes with a free far cry 2 and star craft (trial).

a down side is power consumption.

ive just invested, up to you guys if you think its worth a punt.

if anyone knows how to make the links into links that be great.

I have one of these. I upgrade VGA almost every year. This was my best buy so far.
Yes, it gets hot but my side fan does a good job and keep it under 76 degrees even in warm room.
Bit power hungry, but price/performance ratio is great on this one.

This one is also very tempting : http://www.****.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-079-GI

fair play i actually bought the pny model due to the extra year on the warranty.

So tempted to commit, but I've only just got my hands on a GTX 460. Different league to the 480, but suits my needs. Good reviews on this card but it is thirsty. Heat added.
