Hi

Anyone know a fanless (silent) video card that supports 1680 by 1050
resolution for the Dell 2005FPW widescreen LCD? I don't need high
performance.

TIA.

No special requirements other than clear text and not using system
RAM. It doesn't have to be suitable for movies but I might choose one
that was depending on the price difference.

there are several cheap GeForce 6200TC cards that are fanless:

http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=340132 (AGP)
http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=339864 (PCIe)

as far as that resolution, i think any recent nVidia driver can add
custom resolutions.

would still go for a 6600GT if you can stretch the $$, much better
performance for that high resolution, (none fanless that i know of, but
they're still quiet).

You still need to get the heat put of the case..

Fan less ones can get very hot unless its a low end card that is not clocked
to high.

My GF FX5900XT only list 1600 x 1024 and higher (2048 x 1536 max) but not
what you have listed

Even my New GF 6600 GT does not list that screen mode but its the same as
the GX5900XT that I am selling, has one of the quietest Fans, came second
out of a bunch of cards for Fan noise..

It seems these are for Older Cards as my GF 6600GT has the same Screen modes
as the GF 6800..

I am puzzled why is list 256 Rams for the Nvidia cards, seems to me a Flawed
list.


This is one reason why the Nvidia could be a better choice

I would ring Dell and get some better upto date Info..

PCI express is very new
Ive seen admitedly only one, X300 card that wasnt reliable
It could have been a lot of reasons but a PCI card in the same machine
worked flawlesly
The radeon needed a new driver to stop it locking the machine at
startup but still was not 100%
