Asus by far has better software in my opinion, you have Asus DVD (WinDVD), 2 games (Drakan, Rollcage), and 12 Game Demos. Asus also comes with a winbond chip, so you can watch the temperature and make sure it doesnt get too hot.
I think the Hercules just comes with game demos.
If the alarm clock woke you up this morning, you didn't get enough
You're right about that ArG, almost all GTS based cards perform the same. I have an Asus V7700 Pure and I'm quite hppy with it. I would've gone for the Hercules but the price difference it quite signifcant. Either card you get will give you the same performance. It all depends pretty much on what sofware bundle you want
Well, I think I'll go for the Asus V7700. I got another question. I might as well get a DVD; would I need a decompression card to run DVD Movies on my TV (with the TV-out on the video Card)? I could get a Hollywood Plus for about 40 bucks, just want to know if it's usefull I think it's for MPG-2 decompression but I'm not sure...
