I did a hardware mod on one 9700 Pro, and a software mod on another. Both of them were horrible. You do get pro performance, but BSoDs are very common, like almost once every hour and a half on both machines I tried. This was earlier this year though, and the Fire GL drivers have been updated and supposively improved greatly since then.

On Linux, I don't think you even need to do the mods because there is only on Linux driver for Radeons and FireGLs, and you can set the device ID right in XF86Config. It actually performed better in Linux than in Windows, but X lockups were pretty frequent.
