My System Specs

Default Upgrade GDDR5 Ram?

Forum Mods - Video card section or memory section?
I have a pair of Sapphire HD5970's with inconsistant memory performance. I have found a reball/reflowing company to replace the memory chips. Is it possible to upgrade the ram in the process or will it saturate the existing onboard memory controller?

Present chips are Hynix H5GQ1H24AFR - T2C
1.5 vdd/vddq; 1gb; 8k/32ms refresh; 32Mx32; 16 banks running at 2.5 ghz

I would like to bump the ram to Hynix H5GQ2H24AFR - T2C
1.5 vdd/vddq; 2gb; 16k/32ms refresh;64Mx32; 16 banks running at 2.5 ghz

It would be a nice card upgrade if possible.
