no prob. Hopefully we will see some more results soon.

Really, if this works well this is hotter than the 9800 np. Does anyone know if places like Best buy sell these? that wayu we could try them out and return them if it doesnt work

Why would I be joking? How is that any different than everyone getting the 9500 with l shaped memory and RMA'ing them when they don't mod?

In fact, It isn't even against the policy at BB. The return policy allows you to return it for any reason you choose within the return period. There isn't anything illegal about it.

so no, i'm not joking.

Just because people were doing it doesn't mean it's right.

its not like this issue of morals just surfaced. the same thing has been going on w/ 9500np's that wouldn't mod to a 9700, and also the 9800np's that wouldn't mod to 9800pros. and that latter of the two was coming from best buy...i guess they don't even have any 9800np's left. but come on, we're talking about video cards here...not fancy dinners or personal purchases through a business that can be written off for a tax break or something. besides, if best buy's return policy states that you can return it for whatever reason by a certain date, then one can do so without lying. just stating that you weren't happy w/ it, or that it wasn't performing the way you thought it would is reason enough (AND you're not lying about anything).

lol what business is it of your if people do decide to RMA them? Unless you're the RMA police or are so pure and good that you NEVER do anything bad in your life, then i'd say there is little need for your crapping. There are far worse things going on in the world than someone RMA'ing a graphics card... I think you need a reality check. :beer:

So you go to the store and tell them that you tried to oc the card to 9800pro levels and it wouldn't work?

Nope, i'd go and tell them I am not satisfied with it's performance.


Regardless, I could care less what you think about it. If you have a problem with it bring it up in it's proper place in forum issues. If the mods think it is innapropriate to discuss then we will all stop discussing it, in all the various threads it comes up in.

But please leave your moral agenda out of this thread, and stay on the topic od modding this card. Forcefully pushing a thread offtopic is against forum rules. Leave us alone.

Lol, Yeah let me get a mod... where is my whistle?
I am simply stating my opinion, there is nothing wrong with modding the cards but you shouldn't return it after you fry them. Perhaps you have a guilty conscience.

I have no guilt over this.

There is nothing WRONG with your opinion. and it doesnt bother me. However this thread is not about the morality of the subject. Please keep on topic.

Budmantom people like you make me laugh. You are always convinced you are right and that no matter what anyone says they are wrong. Unless you're not intelligent enough to work it out, the reason he's telling you to get lost isn't because he has a guilty conscience, it's because you've come into the thread and basically decided you're going to be the moral voice of the people whether they want it or not. The fact is, no-one particularly cares what your opinion on the subject is, and you must know that despite persisting to post in this thread in order to make your voice 'heard'.

If he had a guilty conscience about it I doubt he'd have started the thread, and I for one would also agree with him in RMA'ing the card to get a decent mod, why the hell not? Corporations and major manufacturers screw us consumers over on such a regular basis that I for one have no qualms about causing them a little bit of bother occasionally. And I repeat, what is it to you if he does? Are you the type who's never even jay-walked in his life and is happy to be told what to do and how to act like some brainless robot?

There's just no reason for you to crap this thread, and your attempt at taking the moral high-groung and trying to make us feel somehow less of a person for suggesting the RMA'ing is frankly laughable. If you want to champion a cause, then go and campaign for wars to end, womens rights, or animal testing, at least then you'll have something remotely worthwhile to do with your time. :beer:
