can anyone recommend a good ATI gpu which is passive cooled that will pass HD audio via HDMI.

Yep - the 5450 is available in passive format, and will bitstream True HD and DTS HD audio to an HDMI amp. (AIUI you have to disable "Smooth Video Playback" to get Vector Adaptive de-interlacing at 1080i - but that isn't a major issue)
