Fastest video card (without fan)?

    I'm trying to keep my nearly-silent system, well, nearly-silent. I'm
    looking to upgrade my GeForce 440 with a faster card that can play
    Half-life and Doom3 well, but looking for something quiet, preferably
    without a fan.

    Any experinces out there?

    I'm trying to keep my nearly-silent system, well, nearly-silent. I'm
    Playing them without a fan on the video card will be doable, but a card
    that will play them *well* (lots of eye-candy turned on, high framerates,
    etc.) without a fan is going to be pretty tough - at least for D3.
    Half-life will probably be easy, but HL2 might be a different matter.
