    Try bumping the clock on the 6970 w/ the Sapphire TriXX program See what you can do. I was able to bench 1000/1450 with 3dmark11, but it wasnt stable enough for gaming

    With a 200 Mhz increase in CPU to 4.6 Ghz the 6970 gains over a 1000 points

    Yeah, in 3dmark06 but in 3dmark11, it doesnt seem to pickup much at all from my testing. Maybe you could give it a shot and see? I saw such a minimal increase going from 4ghz to 4.3ghz that it wasnt even worth it (few dozen points was all).

    Nothing seems to in 11. If anything in 11 the only reason the score would pick up from CPU is if the CPU is bottlenecking the GPU.

    I just bought a 6950 since they are pretty much all flashing over to 6970 100%

    Should be a fun card. Not that I need a sidegrade :P

    My Mentor told me: It means unless you move the computer, I have to move programs. What you did is good thing.

    Rather than explain I think I will rewrite the programs.

    What you might want to do is contact our slacking() ATI CE KonaKona, and post in his CE thread that you would like to write up an article for this.

    If you havent already, contact IMOG to get you setup in WP... tell em Earthdog sent you. LOL!
