hmm. thats around 100 USD. I guess you could get decent card with that.

How about the 6200 by NVIDia? That is okay performer. Also theres a chance that you might unlock extra pipes with rivatuner.

Many have done so already. Apparently the 128 mb version of these cards can successfully mod, but i have yet to hear a successs story with the 256 mb models.


well here's a link

actually nvm. IT's not fanless.

However, it's a good card, and not very loud.

Yeah, a TNT2 would be a great card just for regular desktop stuff. A few of the weaker GF2's and GF4's(MX series, maybe GF3, but I've not looked into them as much) don't have fans.

Hmm...Have you see those fans you mout over your expansion cards? Large 120mm fans... I wonder how one of those would cool a GFX card that normally has a fan on it. That alternative way would certinally make it more quiet, but the card would probably get hot, espcially if you game with it...

Gigabyte makes some fanless cards that have huge heatsinks on the front and back of the card to disperse heat.
