My wife wants her machine quieter.
Right now I am thinking of swapping out the CPU for a low voltage C2D.
I have better fans. for the case.
And that leaves the video cards.

Web browsing, easy games, and watching videos (on line and DVDs, BD too)
It is supporting a 24" LCD at 1920x1080

What is out there these days.

    To my knowledge there is not a higher performing passively cooled option than this one.

    For the workload described this may be just fine.

    Other more economical alternative is to replace the GPU cooler with a passive one. You can check if ARCTIC COOLING ACCELS1 Rev 2 VGA Cooler fits.

    + What Mirage wrote. Those Arctic Cooling passive coolers are simply amazing. I've used them before.

    Ed, you could also use software to moderate the vid card's fan speed. It might be quiet enough for you, but at least it would be a free experiment. Maybe you wouldn't have to buy anything.
