Hi,

the 9800 se would be faster. Have you tried to softmod the 9800se with the omega drivers? It will unlock the extra pipelines and turn it into a 9800pro i think.

www.omegadrivers.net

just download the newest drivers and then when installing there will be an option for softmod of a 9800se.

its just that the 9700 pro has got more pipelines than the 9800se but runs at a similer clock speed

if you cant unlock the 9800se, then i'd go for the 9700 generally a faster card stock wise as it has the 8 pipelines by default instead of the se's 4

The SE range is a budget range. It's a marketing ploy. Companies can now offer PC's with 9800 Graphics. To the consumer, would assume that the SE (second edition) would be an improvement. However it isn't. It's also a way to make use of chips which have a defect in the core.

It is a cruel trick, Both ati and nvidia have done it in the past. People to associate SE with either second edition or special edition, yet its more like slower edition
