Hello,
I know the question might seem weird, since graphics card for gaming almost always use extra power via the 6 or 8 pin cables, but since i started putting a computer with focus on temperatures and sound levels, i was wondering if there was a decent card without any auxiliary power needs, and if so, what?

I get that its sort of a strange question, but sound levels and heat is the focus of this build, and since Im still pretty new, i guessed that the best way to keep down heat was to reduce the power usage and with that, TDP, across the board.

Thanks in advance.

There are definitely cards available. The 5450 is a good example. Mind you, you're not going to get a lot of gaming power out of a card that doesn't have an external power requirement.

What games are you looking to play at what resolution?
