unlock other 4 pipelines on 9800SE
Has anyone tried this yet?
Also, does anyone know how much better the results would be?

In short, yes. Results are approximate to a 9800pro. Thats because a 9800se is a 9800pro that's been crippled by software.
See Softmodding guide.
Hunt around for anything on 'softmodding' The same thing has been done with the 9500np, it softmodded to 9700 and gave excellent results.

DOH sry for not reading the soft mod sticky. I read it before, but the last time I read it, it was only about the 9500 -> 9700. I think I'll just buy a 9800SE even if I don't get it to softmod.CPU: AMD 64 3000+ DTR @ 2750

only some 9800se's have a 256bit mem bus, make sure you get a 256bit bus card. i think powercolor makes one. sapphire and bba are 128bit. if you cant softmod the card, that extra ram bandwidth still helps to make it faster than a 96005820k @4250 Asus X99 Deluxe

even the sapphire card that says 128bit, as long as it has the 'L' Shaped layout is really 256bit.
You won't be able to get full performance out of the 128bit cards, it's one of the limiting factors of the speed of the card.
