I bought a retail All In Wonder Radeon 9800 pro for $388.00 with shipping and tax. In my nearest store in Circuit CIty they are selling them for $480 with tax, so thats like $100 difference.

I guess from replies here im wrong (and on another site which i've forgotten 50%+ of people got it working correctly)
Can someone just confirm that the softmod for this card completely unlocks it to 8 pipelines? That will do... the rest is just tweaking and seeing what can be got with various cooling solutions
River tuner is showing this for me

Well my card arrived yesterday and as expected it blows my GF 4 Ti4400 128MB right out of the water.
In my Abit rig @2.1Ghz with the supplied Catalyst drivers I'm getting 3.5K in 3Dmark 03 and 14k in 3DMark 01.
With the patched drivers it shows up like yours Bradmax57 but I'm getting slight chequerboarding in some benchmarks, not all. The scores however leap to 5.3K in 03 and just over 16K in 01.
I'm going to do a fresh clean install of the OS and patched drivers and see if there is any artifacting in my games.
DVD playback is fantastic BTW, now to sell the GF4....

Laz.
