does anyone have a favorite silent card (passively cooled) that supports hdmi, hdcp, and video hardware acceleration (either ati's avivo or nvidia's purevideo)?
i am trying to make my pc silent so that i can leave it on all the time. when i leave my computer on right now it is audible at night and i would like it to be silent. i already have a scythe ninja, which i can use passively to cool my cpu, and if i get a silent video card i can be completely passive (except for my psu fan, but it is an extremely quite 120mm fan). i bought an arctic cooling ati silencer for my x850 xt, which is good, and fairly quite, but emmits a high pitch whine which is really annoying at night.
i want a card that is completly passive and supports everything i need to connect it to my home theater later if i want. the only game i would want to play on this would be cs:s, so the performance criteria is pretty low.
