    Low Profile Fanless Graphics Card for an HTPC

    I'm trying to get the right balance for my new HTPC between no noise , no heat and decent playback.

    My Radeon 9800 with passive heatsink can barely be stuffed inside my new Antec case, so I am looking for a low profile card, without a fan, and with decent DVD playback - one day I may afford a plasma screen ....

    After a wearisome search I have come across this:

    Sapphire Radeon 9550SE 128MB AGP 64bit TV-Out DVI Lite Retail Box

    Any good? I doubt many games are going to get played on this.

    Seems ideal for your needs.

    But you wont get any decent 3d games on it though. Scrabble, maybe.
    For an HTPC i'd probably get it.

    So long as you do not want to play any games on your HTPC, this card will do just fine for your needs.
