I'd suggest looking at the features the MSI P67A-GD65 offers over the other boards in MSI's line. The components differ very little from top-to-bottom and there's a good chance you'll just be paying extra cash for features you'll never use. Just a thought.

If you have a Memory Express nearby, you can try PMing the reference HIS 6950 2GB from Newegg (it is OOS online though, it will vary based on your store). It is $240 after the pricematch and you have a good chance of unlocking the shaders on it to that of a 6970.
