    Have you run a benchmark with both 1408 and (presumably) 1536 shaders and observed any difference in score? There should not be any need for reinstall the catalyst drivers.

    i damaged my 6970 :-(

    Even with above avarage soldering skills, this should be very difficult to repair. Have you tried to install the card? It might work, perhaps only with a little less memory than before. Worth a try imho.
