new video card or not?
 
Ive "pre"ordered Half Life 2 but just hope my vid card is upto it, ive got a ati 9500np which softmods to a 9700 pro no problem, I run it day to day at 350/320 so its technically faster than a standard 9700pro, I was thinking of getting a 9800se to try the same but so far cant find one in UK, thing is will i notice much of a jump to a 9800 from what ive got already?

Hmmm, it's also quicker than my 9700 pro overclocks to without artefacts. I must have got the worst one ever manufactured. :mad:

You might find the attached article interesting though. It looks like a close call between what you've got and the 9800se, if you can even get one.

I think it is possible to mod a 9800 SE to 8 pixel pipelines, if your lucky!

03 does different tests like pixel shader 2.0 and the 9800 is geared up for this.
