You type better than I do and I can even see.
What's to identify? You already know it's a 9700, other specs on label,
make it the non-Pro version with 128MB memory, and the I/O plugs on it
should be fairly obvious.

newer versions on ATI's website. (hint- ATI's website).

Tried Rage3DTweak yet? Not only does it allow you to tweak the Catalyst
settings, but the latest version lets some clock-locked Radeons be
overclocked without a bios update...

Try it. I like it...
