Of course, considering the fact that you have lots of money
Actually, I don't.

A 6970 is like $350 here, and I can justify the price increase based on the differences between this card, and a reference 6970. I spend a fair bit of time examining hardware down to the component level, and liek I said earlier, if it was $100 less, I'd probably buy one.

I got the Dirt3 version 3 weeks ago. Flipped the switch and OCd with Sapphire Trixx to 920/1300 @ 1.18v. Awesome card for $269 and it's really a 6970 2GB (plus Dirt3 for mine) which was an epic deal.

I never knew that! Maybe that's why its on the hush hush...Depending on how the 7xxx series go (I plan on upgrading in Jan/Feb 2012 when 7xxx series come out. If they are delayed again, I'd def be picking these two up!

Not even taking my 6970's into account, my unlocked reference Diamond 6950 2GB has been OC'd past 1075Mhz core and 1500MHz memory at no more than 1.22v, and benched heaven, furmark, vantage P, etc with remarkable scores.

Just a reference for what reference cards are capable of.
