OK, I know this may sound odd, but isnt a 7600GS a GT with DDR2 ram instead of DDR3?

If this is so, why does Rivatuner say there is pipes to unlock, when i highly doubt there is?

Is it possible to softmod this card? IE 12pps->16pps

No it is not possible. There are no pipes to unlock as the core, as you say, is essentially an underclocked 7600GT. However the 7600GS will not clock as high as the 7600GT unless you have an unusual card as they were essentially the cores that would only garauntee to clock to 400, whereas the 7600GT core is garaunteed to 560.

You are correct on the memory though. 400MHz GDDR2 to 700MHz GDDR3

Rivatuner does say that for some 7600GT's check the forum and you'll see. I haven't checked mine and properly assesed whether all of them are incorrectly identified.

Ok, that is what I thought I just needed confirmation on it.

And BTW, it's the card in my system specs.
