Silent, affordable, adequate video solution: Asus' passively cooled 9600GT

If you’re in the market for it, this silent Asus 9600GT is a great deal right now. The hardware and performance are quite good enough to play Call of Duty 4, Team Fortress, or World at War, but the price is a drop in the bucket. It competes on a par with the 8800GT and Radeon 3870, and has the benefit of being completely passively cooled. Bad news if you’re an overclocker, but great news if you run a small, quiet system. $140 after rebate is a bargain, I’d jump on that if you’re putting something together.
