    Think I am going to keep my faithfull 6950's (6970 flashed) as I like the thought of the 2gig of memory, I have a buyer for the GTX 570 Twin Frozr III @ £225 so will flog it.

    As an aside, my one 6950 flashed to 6970 works lovely at 940mhz @ 1.2V, no matter how much volts it wont go faster stabily but I guess that is because it's maxed the +20% Powerplay.

    My other card will not do more than 865mhz flashed no matter how much volts I put thru it, this is fairly common with some that get flashed. So I played a little tonight, did some reading, re-flashed the card back to 6950 but with the Asus Bios (modded to 1.175V), downloaded the newest Asus Smartdoctor, installed it, enabled the overclocking headroom, uninstalled Smartdoctor and voila! I now have a 6950 with the CCC upper limit raised from 840 to 1300mhz!!! Now the baby will do 950mhz with powerplay @ 15% and I get significantly better fps than I did flashed to 6970 at just the 865mhz....... at aguess you need about an extra 50-60mhz over the 6970 clocks to make up for the extra shaders so I am well happy....... damn I love these dual Bios cards! :)

    Thats quite the stroke of luck Tatty. Going to see about moving to Sandybridge end of next month i think, any ideas for a motherboard? Ive got about £100 give or take £20.

    Not really upto speed on Sandybridge boards...... freedom knows the score on them, I did consider upgrading to a 2600K but to be honest, my 920 that I have had since they came out I dunno 2 or 3 years ago is still going strong, I can run her at 4.4gig for benching but she plays 24/7 at 4.1gig, thats plenty for me these days.

    It was more of a general question to anyone but yeah Freedom should be able to point one out for me. 2600k is out of my price range, 2500k is all i need for games and the odd video encode.

    Thanks for the link.

    My current board is crossfire but its not really important, at least at the time i bought my current motherboard the crossfire boards had a better chipset or more features over just an m-atx board. Its cool that board supports both incase i ever wanted to use it.

    I was thinking of a P67 board. I dont have or plan to get an SSD soon and i dont to use the integrated GPU.

    Gigabyte motherboards any good?

    I use nothing but Giggy boards these days, I have spent 10 years using Asus predominantly, and whilst I still like them, I find £ for £ giggy's superior for overclocking and stability, just a personal preference really.

    the time it takes to answer posts on their forums isn't worth the £1-2 you might save when buying stuff

    Depends on what you buy & how much. Plus, it's better than nothing... cough cough.
