    Hi people I know this has been covered before but i need some reasurances, I have a BFG6600GTOC agp graphics card at the moment in my pc which i really use as a htpc. havn,t played a game with it for months, plays everything i throw at it 1080,720 etc but it is noisy, so I wantr to get another card to replace it but only for hi-def playing of ts films and wmv,s, I prefer nvidia,s dualview system to ati,s system And have seen on here mention of a 6200 and a 6600 which are fanless, both of which seem ridiculously cheap, My question Are they "really" up to the job of hdtv playback ESpecially in regard to the 6200 compared to the 6600gtoc, can they be found in agp or pci-e , should I change motherboard to facilitate a pci_e card. No games will be played at all on this pc from now. so I can just give the 6600gt to the kids or sell it on. cheers Mike.

    P:S is there a way to silence my amd64 3000+ cpu fan?
