I have just bought an ATI Radeon X800 Pro and I was also wondering how risky it is flashing your graphics card BIOS to try and enable the 4 disabled pixel pipelines? Has anyone managed to do this or is it just not worth the risk? I would rather have the 16 rather than just the 12! I would have probably bought the Extreme Edition but they are still nowhere to be seen! CW
On second thoughts after reading a posting on this Helproom Forum I have come to the conclusion that it's too risky! I don't have a Sapphire make of card but a Powercolor and the BIOS/firmware notes say that it has ONLY been tested on a Sapphire so IMHO it is not worth the risk! CW
Thanks for the offer of a lend of a PCI graphics card but I really don't understand WHY I would need it in the first place! Even though I consider myself of average capabilities I think I am out of my depth here! CW
