I'd like some information on buying a mid-range graphics accelerator (Nvidia or ATI.. doesnt make a difference) and modifying it to unlock some pipes or features. The main reason for this is i want to have some fun modifying some computer hardware. I tried to modify my radeon 9000 by adding ramsinks and a better cooler and then overclocking it by a good percent but it seemed to be clock-locked and then for no apparent reason i took off the ram sinks and busted up something (get a crazy picture now and i cant tell what its doing). Word of advice---DONT USE CRAZY GLUE FOR HEAT SINKS!---. As i've said in other posts, any information would be greatly appreciated.
