    Hey just got this card after reviewing several sources im pretty excited about it. Im new to ATI so the driver system is a little different.

    im using these drivers:

    Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get the most out of this card with my system?

    Follow this for uninstalling/reinstalling drivers: How To: Reinstall Video Drivers (Quick Guide)

    Leave things in CCC on default, use in game settings and have fun.

    There are some games where you may want to force certain settings through CCC, but it is best to make a profile for them, if you even need to.

    What do you mean by 'yet'? I used one almost two weeks ago but then flashed again with a standard XFX 6970 bios instead.

    I can assure you though that the shader unlock bios works fine for the 2gb cards. Did for me.

    2gb version came out before the 1gb version. I don't think there is a 1gb unlock version (I'm probablly wrong) since the 6970 is a 2gb card.
