Can't argue with the logic but you're talking about hoping someone is selling a decent one that is not on its way out, that it has insurance still incase anything goes wrong (usually they're closing in on the end of there insured life so you could pay out and lose your card to damage shortly after with no chance of a replacement).
I prefer to go in mid range and get it insured so this card is a bit pricey but value for money wise to other brand new cards its still great. I go in a round 5850 or GTX460 level but if I was making a more expensive rig I'd be looking at this card for sure.

This is the cheapest price for this card currently, so if someone is in the market for one of these beautys then this is a hot deal. Depreciation on graphics cards is nuts if you refer to a card that is two genertaions old. If you are smart and sell your card before the next new gen releases you will re coup most of the money you spent out in the first place. I uprgade my card every gen and lose very little money and always have latest tech, keeping PC tech for years and years is a sure way for it to be worth nothing when you eventually do want to upgrade...

Just buy a 6950 for £213 and unlock to a full 6970 Save yourself £57!



Not every HD 6950 can run at HD 6970 speeds, if you check forums lots of people are getting memory errors and thermal power throttling that kicks earlier than an actual HD 6970 would, thus rendering the overclocked flashed bios useless in certain setups. If you want HD 6970 speeds just buy a HD 6970 and enjoy it! This is the chepaest I can find a HD 6970 currently and at this price is amazing value. Fot those that worry about losing money, just sell the card beofre the 7000 series launches and re coup your money
