You could look over @ Newegg's clearnce section, or their refurb section, they get some really sweet deals, like my Sapphire 9800SE 256 bit for $99.

have you tried soft-modding that 9800se into a 9800 pro? or xt?
you should look into that, since it could very well be an un-gimped chipset

-edit-
I checked newegg.com for a KV7, as im partial to VIA chipsets, and its only $62. Wich really isnt a bad price, but... still more than i can currently afford... sadly...

No no. I never siad they shipped to the US, I just didnt know where you lived and stuck that link in just in case you were in the UK.

Newegg dont deliver to the UK. Which is a shame as I was looking to get a 9800SE, for the cheap softmod fun.

I did softmod it, and was getting some mild checkerboarding, so I went back to 4 piplelines. Granted I could probably get rid of the checkerboarding by turning of antialiasing, and other tweaks, but for now I'm happy overclocking it from 325/277 to 370/300, although I only do that for gaming, as I don't want to risk killing the card. I'll be getting some ramsinks soon and a low profile all copper cpu HSF and using that I'll be able to oc it some more.
