I have been considering this. The Information I have been able to gather so far is that it is an upgrade but performance wise not very much of one. Although It also seems that the 6950's Scale better and are allot smoother feeling the their 6870 counter parts. So is it worth the up grade. I have been considering this since I heard the 1 Gb cards were coming. Not to say that I would purchase the 1Gb option.... It just makes the 6870's more useless when the 6950 1Gb's release. Anyone do this and verify to me that is not that big of an upgrade..... or can someone who has done this let me know that it is. Either way just something I have been considering. Not asking if it is a good idea....Just want to know how much difference there is really to make up my mind myself. Thanks.
