    Where did you get that idea? :confused:
    Not sure why I thought that.. Guess I figured it was only the 9600 and 9800.. Oh well so it is:)

    I don't know why anyone would believe the 9700 Pro is not a DX9 card, it was the FIRST DX9 card ever along with the lower priced 9500 version.

    How else would they score like they do in 3DM03 if they didn't even support that API?

    Yea I did read a review somewhere, though I too cannot remember where. I checked the ATI site and confirmed it is.

    But now knowing that is the case, I would definately buy the 9700, may even buy one myself.

    BTW, I softmodded my 9500 to a 9700 and it is sweet. :p

    Yeah the soft mods are cool, it took me a while to get used to seeing the "9700" in my display properties. However, they are risky when you flash the BIOS.

    Flashed my 9800np to pro, i was able to overclock the core higher to about 440, but the memory are running lower than pro clock cause of crappy memory chips, a mere 320.

    Yeah on mine, my memory is really sucky. I couldn't get all the juice out of 'em as I would have like to. But oh well, there is a performance boost.

    dyck15 , my friend told me the 9700 from some manufactures had dx9 problems and so some places said that 9500 and 9700 were not dx9 compatable [he bought a 9700 back when and did his research] but driver upgrades took care of those few.......so last i'll say on this , but thought you might appreciate that it was writen awill ago, and we did see it
