Anyone know a video card that will be quiet while running at full capacity? My current video card is from 2007 when i bought my comp its NVIDIA 8500 GT and it sucks and gets really loud even when i play simple games that don't have high-quality graphics. I don't care about the price... all I want is a quiet one, any suggestions?

 Thanks :)

Take a look at some cards from Sparkle, I believe they put out some silent ones with passive coolers.

It really depends on what you want to play. Many of the modern cards can have passive coolers but some of the higher end ones require very good case cooling or else they will overheat. What are some of the games that you play?

you could buy any card and buy a liquid cooling kit for it if you want one with a quiet fan it will have to be low end.

I wouldn't say low end. I am sure he could find a nice mid-range card with a quiet fan if he's willing to pay.
