    Best Buy has some cheapo $69.99 Visiontek ATI HD2400 Pro card on sale. Sounds good. Cheap way to watch HD movies on the PC, dual DVI monitor support, HDMI, etc

    But the the fucking cooling fan is so loud! :squint: Is there some way to replace it? :hsd:

    This is the card:

    If it's upgradeable, can you recommend a QUIET fan? :x:

    Two solutions.

    1. Buy a video card that is passively cooled
    2. Buy a video card that uses a dual slot cooler
