I actually felt a little dirty buying it )
Well I'm extremely happy with my 6950 2gig card, and the fact that I flashed it to a 6970 and it's been running like that for about 6 months now. In fact it does me pretty good in Skyrim.

Since moving from 3dfx all I've ever used is ATI single card setups. I don't plan on going crossfire as there are just too many driver issues, even now.

Anyway as long as my single card performs as I need that's all I'll stick with.

I think the majority of my disdain for Cat drivers was due to multi-GPU setups. It'd probably be a different kettle of fish if I'd have gone back to single AMD cards. But it's hard to shake a few years of frustration

Lol, sheer frustration and very limited stock options.

(After the 6th 'do you have this in stock then?' and the resulting 'No', I said flap it give me a damn 6950 then. It's still in it's box, unused... )
