...Big mistake! As soon as I got past the "isn't it pretty" stage and actually tried to do something with the bloomin' thing it was very clear that I needed a graphics card so I promptly went out ... Read review

If you want faster framerates ask a Prophet.

AdvantagesGood Price, Looks Cool, Fast

DisadvantagesCheaper cards give similar performance on slower processors.

"...but when I saw the Hercules Prophet II MX in my local PC World had been reduced from £129.99 to £99.99 I decided that it was the right time to get a faster card. In the box was the card itself, A CD with the drivers, a rather unusual utility (more of that later) and a rather thin but easy to follow manual. The unusual utility that I spoke of earlier was an overclocking program. Hmmmm we are constantly reminded that overclocking a card ..." Read review

Super fast, cool card.

AdvantagesVery fast, cool box, excellent support.

Disadvantagesnone.

"This is after my experience the best geforce sdr card around, specially if you upgrade to the new detonator3 6.18 drivers (download them here: www.nvidia.com) The card comes in a cool box, and the manual is, good, produkt support is great, i had a problem with the resolution and i got a reply from my e-mail within 24 hours. The card tackles all games easily at 1280x1024 pixels, and most at 1600x1200, which is great, the newest drivers from nVIDIA ..." Read review

Whoooosh!!!!

AdvantagesExtremely fast

DisadvantagesA bit pricey

"After reading all the hype I couldn't wait to get my hands on a Geforce card and I wasn't at all disappointed - Quake III will never be the same again. I couldn't believe the difference between the 3D Prophet DDR-DVI and my old Voodoo II SLI cards. The graphics are much smoother and the frame rates much higher .Benchmarking with 3DMark2000 proved all this - almost doubling the score. The DVD playback is also excellent although I had to buy an s-video ..." Read review

Prophet2MX

AdvantagesHardware T&L, performance, price etc...

Disadvantagesnone!

"...that word would be Fantasticvalueformoneyfeaturepackedandincrediblyfast! The Hercules Prophet2 MX is a card based around Nvidia’s Geforce2 MX chipset which is a cut down budget version of the geforce2 GTS. Retailing at around £100, this is the best AGP card you can buy short of £150. It outperforms the Voodoo4500/5000&5500 and the ATI Radeon 32mb SDR in nearly every benchmark you can think of. Now if your monitor can only go up to 1024x768 ..." Read review

Great if not too serious

Advantagescompatable with almost anything, good price

Disadvantagesthere are better cards out there if you have the cash

"This is a great all round card which performed well inthe benchmark tests that I ran on it. It is a reasonable price, and it makes for a nice card to be sitting in your computer. The manual is quite concise, and the company support is reasonable. You can download any new drivers from the homepage of the company. This card is not the top of its category, but if thats all the monewy you have, then you couldn't do much better. I would advise this to ..." Read review
