Windows 7: Moral Dilemma...Or Is It?

Absolutely.

I was never solely basing my want for the 6950 on the off-chance it could be flashed. It was just a feature I sought after for much of the same reason any of us would shop far and wide for a particular CPU revision. Of course there's a difference between the two but you get where I'm going. And I'm not a fanboy of either team (not that you hinted at it just clarifying) but I have more ATi cards than anything...so I guess maybe a little bit of fanboyism is there.

Pardon the DP but I think I've just come across an idea: what's the verdict on 6950/6870 CF?

Probably could have saved yourself those headaches by now

Yeah. I took the gamble, but you were definitely right.

And now I hate you.

Alot may disagree, but Im not a huge fan of X-fire/SLI or even dual core GPUS.

I think getting the most powerful single card you can fit in your budget is the best bet, as a single card will have less issues overall.

Thats what I would do anyway.

If all goes well I should have my 6950 by the end of the day.

Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with the refund.

I thought about that but I think I'm going with a new case so I get my WC kit together, a HAF-X to be specific.

Strangely, neither. My folks decided to pick it up for me for some reason, so I'm either settling with a VisionTek or Diamond card.
