    Title says it all really...

    Can anyone save me some time by pointing me in the direction of any fanless agp graphics cards that will fit in a shuttle box (i will change the case eventually, but for now it has to stay)?

    Cheers for any replies, Sean.

    It all depends on how much you wish to spend!

    It starts at about £25 for an ATI 9200 and goes up to about £200 and more for the higher spec cards.

    Do you need dual monitor support? Will you be playing demanding games?

    If you can go a little over the ton, have a look at Gigabytes fanless 6600GT. 130 quid I think.

    Does a fanless 6600GT physically fit in a shuttle?
    Radeon 9600 fanless has a nice small heatsink if not

    I have a question Will a Radeon 9700 Pro with a fan work in a shuttle XPC? I have a ST64G4 with the ATI chipset that I want to use as a HTPC. I am using the onboard 9100IGP at the moment but I need more horsepower for HD playback. I have access to a Radeon 9700 Pro from ebay.

    It will fit and work quite well. However do not pay too much for that 9700. It is already 3 generations old and you can pick up more capable cards for not a huge amount of cash. By that I mean more poweful and cooler running.

    I've just swapped out the GFX5200 that I had in my shuttle box for a 6200 (around £50 from scan). The 5200 was struggling with HD stuff, but the 6200 copes with 1080i without any problems. Its fanless and low-profile so it fits in a shuttle with no problems

    Well the 9700 Pro was causing too much heat in my Shuttle so I've ordered a 6200.

    For a year or so I used a Sapphire 9600pro fanless card, and worked perfectly fine in my shuttle(s).

    I have now upgraded to a Sapphire X700pro AGP card, which does have a fan, and at first I was worried it might sound like a aircraft taking off, but it doesnt make any noise at all (even to the point where I have taken the lid off to make sure its still working!).

    Its perfectly acceptable for gaming (not the best, but good enough), and more importantly it is quiet, as my games shuttle doubles up as my DVD machine as well.

    I picked up the card for around 120 for the 256MB version, from ebuyer.

    The Gigabyte 6600 fanless will fit in the PCI slot of a Shuttle. However, the tuner card I had in the PCI slot had to be removed (now swapped for a USB version).

    Also, the heat pipe that goes between the front and back heat sinks makes it a very tight fit when installing. You sort of have to bend the card a bit to make it fit.

    Once it's in place, everything was fine.
