if you have a HD6950 then I'm sure you have unlocked it - unlocking is a process to unlock the dormant [ mostly bios locked ] shaders on a HD6950 to gain additional shaders counts for performance increment - doing so [ with clock speed increment ] makes a HD6950 [ 1408 shaders ] effectively a HD6970 [ 15087 shaders ]

From that pic I can still see Texture filrate, memory bandwidth, memory mhz and ROPS - so I'm not sure what are you trying to say here ??

don't think too much about the gpu bios now - first get a good PSu like the one suggested above and test the clock speeds of the gpu.

Get atleast Seasonic Sii 520 (dunno the exact model) As HD 6950/6970 are very power hungry cards...

any other budget psu uner 3k ..i cant go that far ...and any budget gaming pc cabinet under 2.6k and link plss

how to test the clock speed of the gpu

dont compromise on psu. It is the most important part of you system . Drop the the idea of gettng a gaming cabby now. instead get seasonic s12ii 520/620 and a local cabby. you can change the cabby anytime later.

how to test the clock speed of the gpu

use gpuz utility.

it should handle. but getting 620 wont hurt either as you have the budget.

it can easily take the load of your entire pc and it has 2x pci-e power connectors.
