What do you mean modded exactly? Like overclocked? I'm not sure what you mean.

Anyway, you can get a 4830HD for relatively cheap. Also can get 3850HDs for around $80.00, not too expensive for a good video card. 9600GT is good too, but somewhat expensive.

Those days are long gone.
No more unlocking pipelines - they are all laser cut nowadays.

However, bios flashing is still around - ppl flash regular cards to better factory overclocked bios all the time.

hd 4870 512mb is a prime example of such a card.

Yes to unlock pipelines ;) And to overclock :toast:

that only worked for Galaxy 9600GSO's, and the first ones at that. that is no longer possible. though you can still flash the bios to a factory overclocked 9600GSO bios as stated before, then do a volt mod and try to overclock the hell out of the card :rockout:

getting a newer and faster card nowadays are better and far more safer(voiding the warranty) on your low end card.
