If you had used the search function (and posted in the proper forum) you would have known exactly what to do.

i already tried using the search function , typed in all sorts of keywords but couldnt find it, and those threads isnt the thread im on bout, its a thread that involves editing a file and copying the string info for a 9800 and pasting it over the 5900 and it fools HL2 into thinking my card is a 9800
