    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%
