    0 for 1 for me so far. (softmod- got graphical defects)

    From what I've read, the moddable cards are getting few and far between.

    Ati changed the pcb layout shortly after people first started the modding. If you want a 9700, just save up and get one. If you decide to get a 9500, be prepared to except it as it is.

    I had success with the Softmod from a 9500 to a 9700. I got my Sapphire Tech Radeon 9500 Non Pro from BananaPC.com. Prior to doing the softmod i was getting around 10000 points in 3DMark 2001 SE after the SoftMod, I am not getting just over 13,000 in 3DMark 2001 SE. Need any help just lemme know.

    Mine modded successfully. No artifacts.
    However, I think my 9500 was faulty to start with because
    whenever I warm boot I get corruption even at the bios screen.
    A cold boot makes all artifacts go away. This was before any mod.

    9500pro cant be 9700 pro .... The only card is 9500NP with L SHAPED memory...(RED PCD) and not memory in a line (BLACK PCB) the second one can turn only in R9500pro .

    I have tried and failed in turning a 9500 128mb to 9700, I got a green checker boards artifacts on ANY lighting effect.

    So if you want a top notch card, wait a couple of month till the 9800 will be widely awaylable, and get yourself a 9700np, oc it, and you got yourself a 9700pro!

    I had a 100% success w my Connect3d 9500np, now I wonder if I can (anyone tried this?) get it to "9800" with the new 3.2 Catalyst-drivers... THAT would be sweet!
