    I was just wondering why my display adapter shows my 9500 Pro as 9700 Pro, is that normal, my bios says 9500 Pro and same with Tachyon Graphics Monitor..

    It could be u just installed under the wrong device ID (since ur Bios is a 95, and not a 97).

    Anyway, like suggested, a bench will be the sure give-away..

    Oh well. I don't know then. My 9700np shows up as a 9700pro, but that's probably because I reflashed the bios on it. If you didn't do anything to yours, it should show up as a 9500.

    If it's running fine though, dont worry about it. More bragging rights when you post a bench score. You can say you have a 9700 instead of a 9500 now, right? :)

    He could, but if it doesn't perform at the 9700pro level it would be kinda obvious.
