Please chime in and give me your picks for best gaming card without a fan. I don't need to push the limits of the latest games - silence is the key. PCI Express is the format. Thanks.

  1. What is your budget? You could probably look it up on Newegg... AFAIK you'll be limited to about an HD3650.

  2. I think there's a 9600GT fanless...........yes here

  3. SAPPHIRE Ultimate Edition 100226U Radeon HD 3850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

    This was the best I could find on newegg.

    EDIT: nvm the guy above found a slightly better card.
  4. does a little fan noise really bother you that much?
  5. What happened to the Fanless 8800GT ? from sparkle?
  6. ECS makes an 8800GT with a Accelero S1 aswell as the 9600GT. Look it up on Newegg. Although it would be cheaper to buy an 8800GT and an S1 and mount it yourself. The same could be said for the 8800GTS512, 9800GTX, 9800GTX+ or 9800GT. All should work flawlessly in a well-ventilated case in passive configuration.
  7. no real budget since anything running without a fan is probably not going to be top end/top dollar. Just want to grab something with the best oomph without a fan.

    well if cost isnt a problem, then why not get 2 4870x2's and water cool them? :D

    on a more serious note, what do you plan on using the card for? if it's for an HTPC, you could get away with a passively cooled 9500GT. MSI makes one with some fancy heatpipe thing on it, and that particular card also has an HDMI port, which is ideal if this is for an HTPC.

    wow i'm surprised that there's a passively cooled GTX 280...


    That would be a water heatsink. :p
