Its a real shame you need a 1000W PSU to run that card proper though. If you haven't got that already, the 6950XT suddenly becomes pretty pricy.If I had to buy now it would be a
6800XT or a 6900XT6950XT (new or used). Still the best deal & enough performance, plus good undervolt scaling.
If not in urge I would wait & see what the 7800 and 7800XT brings to the table. And if AMD can fix the broken FPS capped power usage. Let's hope it's only driver related and no 7000 series hardware flaw.
*P.S.: just checked prices over here. The 6950XT (649€) is even 100€ cheaper than the 6900XT (749€). That's wild! Cheapest 6800XT goes for 569€. With such prices I would pick the 6950XT. Much faster than the 6800XT. And with a nice undervolt you can reach pretty humane power levels, plus the card stays cool & silent. Best bang for the buck right now.
