Default ati drivers

so i got the 9600se, connect 3D, and my mate said i could get drivers and overclock it to get the same performance as a 9600pro. was he telling the truth and if so how?!

sounds like he made it up to me :/

It is possible, what you have to is use the bios flash of the XT on your SE. You will get almost identical performance from your se card.

Yeah, its possible, but overclocking is dangerous, and makes it alot easier to fry your board, or processor, resulting in much more money spent.

I say that you should over clock it but makesure that you have decent cooling in or around it

i tried overclocking it, and i get to a point when games just crash. but this point is only alightly better performance compared to the card when it isn't overclocked
