there is nothing to unlock the link you posted of the pny 6800gt has everything already unlocked. it is a real 6800gt with 16 pipelines and 256megs of ram. So you dont have to worry about unlocking anything. YOu only have to unlock 6800 cards with only 128 megs of ram, those types of cards come with 12 pipelines.

i was mistaken, the 6800gt has everything unlocked. but yes, the eVGA is your best bet. PnY is good but eVGA is better. Better Customer Service, Better Cooling and a Better Overall Card.
