Im thinking about upgrading my video card and cant decide between these two. I know your thinking "easy choice, the 9800PRO", but its a little more complicated than that. I cant REALLY afford the 9800PRO ($120 more than SE here in Australia), and the 9800SE (ive read) can be soft-modded into a 9800PRO. However there only some SE cards are able to do this and its basically a gamble whether you will get one of the ones that can or not.
Basically im just wondering if anone has any advice to offer on this, or if anyone knows the likelihood of getting a 9800SE card that cant be softmodded to a 9800PRO.
explains how to soft-mod it.
