WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO HARDMOD WHEN SOFTMOD WORKS FINE!!
Is there a hidden performance benefit that I am not aware of? Is it a confused mental state? Bragging Rights to your friends???
I just don't see the point in letting amateur morons run around with soldering pens, working on their $160 SE's. Especially when there is no performance benefit other than Windows now calls our cards 8 pipeline Pro's. I think this knowledge should have been limited to the mentally fit.....
Thats my Rant.
If someone can convince me that there is a performance gain to hardmod over softmodding, I will.
I feel your irony, though a little different. All these newbs are running around flashing their 9600 series cards and screwing up etc. when there is absolutely no reason to flash.
