    for a little bit more

    you get a 9700pro...

    the asus card is a decent buy but I rather get an 8 pipeline card over a 4 pipeline card :) plus I would call asus and make sure they are still offering the hl2 coupon.. lots of places still say they do even though they have actually stopped offering it... so make sure about it...

    i would disagree about the VIVO on the 9700 Pro. I have a 9500 pro and its got VIVO, and when I bought it, the 9700 PRO also had VIVO. FYI: Different manufactures offer different packages. Mine is from Sapphire.

    Good Question ... I think it stnads for Video In - Video Out, does it not ?

    Maybe for Vid capture or vid editing ???

    Hell I dont even know if I have it, but I guess I dont really need it being Im not sure ....

    Yeah, I was right it is vid capture and vid editing... So If you want to dl the Paris Hilton video you can put your face in there with hers, other than that I see no real benefit :D
