Will all versions of the 2 gig 6950 be able to flash up to the 6970?

Buy a 2GB version for $260 and flash it to a 6970, $60 upgrade for free!

Don't waste your time with the factory OC versions, they don't get you much performance and they don't fit water cooling blocks.

It's been shown that some 1GB 6950s can have their shaders unlocked like the 2GB version. Then you just OC the shit out of it. But that extra GB of VRAM is worth it, especially at higher resolutions. It's like tne bucks difference and the 6950 has a much better success rate.

This XFX card has been on newegg for about a month and it's never been $290.  Checking today, it's sitting at $270.
