You will need to flash the bios in order to unlock it, Here is some great info read up on it well and when you feel confident enough flash the bios and overclock away,if yours is anything like mine it will do well, I have had my core maxed at 390 and memory to 640 ddr and have gotten just a hair under 15k in 3dmark 2001se.

Umm...

At default speeds, the 9500pro is around the range of the 4400 in raw fps.

You should be able to notice better graphics, i.e richer colours and textures.

However the real fun begins when you turn up AF and/or AA.
Play with those settings and compare it with your older 4400.

Yeah the 9500Pro is about the same speed as the 4400 with default settings. However it is far superior in AA and Antialiasing performance. Have fun with quality settings :).
