    modding that is done through software, rather than hardware.

    The first thing that I, think about when softmoding is brought up is my ATi video card. There are various drivers out besides the regular ATi drivers, that besides making a few tweaks, offer a softmod, that will make certain ATi cards act like a faster model. Although I have used the Omega drivers with good success, you always use these drivers at your own risk. Look at this link to see some of the choices and what they can do.
