"The majority of all DDR cards are exact copies of Nvidia's reference design thus they perform the same since companies rarely do much to Nvidia's drivers. Nvidia's latest driver release makes this card an attractive buy especially since it can be found for around $250. Nvidia's new drivers offer solid frame rate increase in 1024x768 resolutions and above. Unlike most of their driver offerings which don't offer much these are a must download if you own any card from Nvidia regardless of model or make.
Hercules offering is slightly different from the competition as theirs comes packaged with Power DVD, a nifty utility for watching a nice DVD's. Their card also includes a DVI connector, which is a nice addition for people who use a flat panel display and want to have an awesome graphics card. They also include the usual eye-candy demos from Nvidia that are pointless, but definitely like a jelly-filled doughnut to the eyes."
