passively cooled graphics card

Postby redwing » Fri May 07, 2010 7:28 pm

Hello...

I have been using an XFX Radeon HD 5770 card for a while, and though it does all and more than I need in card I find it too noisy for my liking. I have to be able to record from my PC desktop and the roar from the card's fan is picked up by my microphone.

Anyway, what I need is a passively cooled card that has 2 x DVI out and HDMI audio video out. I had been trying video streaming but have given that up as a lost cause for the time being, so I don't need all the power of the HD 5770, just those features for output.

My motherboard is an ASUS M3A87-EM

I was maybe thinking of one of these...
