This seems an absolute bargain compared to the likes of Scan (£255), Overclockers (£239) etc

Only issue is i have never heard of Kikatek.com but having looked at review websites so they seem pretty good.

Now even cheaper, £211.30, another couple of quid off

Decent price. Want these to hit sub £200 and I might take the plunge. Kikatek are a decent company from what I've heard, though never dealt with them personally. Voting hot

Very good deal here.

Yeah, I'm glad I didn't get a HD 6850 1GB. Going to go for a HD 6950 2GB instead when its under £200

Oh yeah, I don't condone this due to possible warranty issues but:

just flash it back to a 6950 when sending for warranty, if you do screw up the bios flash just flick the switch to the backup(non-flashable) fail save bios. as long as the card hasn't died due to other causes you can flip the switch to the fail safe bios to get the system back up and running, and from what I've read flip the switch to the flashable bios without turning the pc off and flash a new bios which should sort out the problem(not tried it myself as not got a 6950 or even 6970).

all 6950s and 6970s have 2 bios's, 1 that you can flash(or the board partner i.e. msi, asus etc can flash to their specs) and the 2nd which is an amd/ati standard fail safe bios that neither the end user nor board partner can flash.

Now £209.99 (£208.94 if paid via debit card)

will this be exactly the same as 6970 or there are any drawback if used as 6970????it is exactly the same card, size, cooling etc... as the 6970 or not really? If not, would actually be considered as a somekind of O.C.? thank you in advance.
