Pixel-Churners: A round-up of Radeon 9700 PRO cards

Hercules 3D Prophet 9700 PRO, Continued

A powerful copper cooler keeps the GPU frigid.

The installation CD contains drivers as well as several ATi 3D demos, Hercules' own tweak tool, 3D Tweaker, and the Hydravision software for dual displays. Hercules has also opted for PowerDVD XP 4.0 instead of the ATi MultiMedia Center. But the real morsel in this package is the full version of Morrowind, a game that will really put the new card to the test.

Hercules includes its own overclocking tool.
