Alright. I attempted to unlock the shaders when I got this card but it didn't work. I have the core at 890 MHz and VRAM at 1325 MHz (highest it can go, assuming I have to up voltage to make it go higher). I think I've asked you this before but what would be a decent OC for a Radeon 6950?
All of them should be able to hit at minimum, HD 6970 level with only 1.110v voltage, which is 880 MHz core, 1375 MHz VRAM. Any higher is totally RNG, and may require increase of voltage.
Most people seem to max out at about 910~940 MHz core, with 1425 MHz VRAM.
For your reference, HD 6970's default voltage is 1.175v.
How much of an increase would I expect to see with 910 MHz/1425 MHz VRAM? I could probably increase the VRAM more but the slider won't go out any further, and when I type in a number higher than 1325 it goes down to 1325. I'm also using MSI Afterburner if that helps any. I don't really want to up the voltage if the performance increase is fairly small.
EDIT: Is that 910-940 with increased voltage?

I'm looking at some of the ones on E-bay currently and a lot of the used ones don't have the heatsink or original packaging, but the lowest I see is $70 and has several bids and just under two days left. Hopefully there's this kind of interest two months down the road >.>
Some old components there.
Z68 is supplanted for Z77
CX series of power supply is somewhat bleh. Consider SeaSonic 520W, PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 500/600W, etc.
You need third party CPU cooler for that i5-2500k
That said, if you won't OC beyond 4.5 GHz, i5-3570k is better
