ASUS V9950, Continued
The software bundle contains several tools: ASUS Tweak (overclocking), ASUS SmartDoctor (hardware monitoring), ASUS Video Security, Digital VCR and ASUS Live Update. The card also ships with DVD player software - the ASUS DVD XP v4.0.
The gaming bundle is on the cutting edge, with "Gunmetal" (2003), "Battle Engine Aquila" (2003) and "Delta Force - Black Hawk Down" (2003). ASUS also includes a CD with the latest gaming demos ("Splinter Cell," "Warcraft III," "Big Mutha Truckers," "Breed," "Colin McRae Rally 3," "Toca Race Driver").
Conclusion: The ASUS V9950 is a solid board with an up to date game bundle and a stealthily quiet cooling solution. The only area where Leadtek and MSI can top it is in its software package.
