Want to buy new ATI card
  

Hello guys I am looking for new video card for my system. And my budget is around 300.00 to 350.00 $ for a fresh video card. What card would be the most excellent selection within that price range? I would like to stay in the company of ATI cards, unless Nvidia has somewhat outstanding within that range. Any advice? I am able to set off $400.00 if it is a truly huge deal. Please help me to buy this new ATI video card. I am waiting for your replies. Thank you.

Re: Want to buy new ATI card

For an ATI card you're looking at 6970. $ 400 gets you close to two 6950s in crossfire. I'd say go with the HD6950 and then open only shaders. That's your best offer to the dollar. HD6000s scale very well (80-100% of scale in many games and benchmarks). But if you are not for any problems that come togheter with crossfire, then I'd move forward for a solitary HD 6950 2GB for $ 250 and the flash in 6970. I hope this information will help you to select the appropriate ATI card for your system thank you.

I thought 6950 was a Trin Frozr II somewhere approximately 270 subsequent to rebates and I believe the Twin Frozr III be able to had in favor of 300. I've been more than happy in the company of mine though. I hope now you are clear with your doubt I want to ask one question can someone tell me what exactly the registry modifies. I be acquainted that you can overclock it, however that be not supposed to be some limit to not kill your card?

Adjust the settings for maximum overclocking 6950. What many people do not flash the card to the 6970 BIOS, but that's not good for two reasons. Change the RAM voltage and timing of the card and RAM is not the same between 6950 and 6970. 6970 off intermittent voltage control MSI AB. What Sapphire 5850 Crossfire Xtreme for $ 300 (2 of them)? I'm sure I could get better DX11 performance elsewhere, but this is very good performance for the price. If not, the 6950 or 6970 are two great choices.

Re: Want to buy new ATI card

Only overclock HD6950 (will give you a 5% yield), the difference is not much in 6970 and is not necessary to use two cards in SLI, the use of too much power in one game does not even require the action so it is better think of your energy bill, so before you have the money to upgrade again in the future. I advise making sure you always have the best CPU in combination with the GPU to boost performance. No use having monster cards when the CPU performance bottlenecks as I have learned.
