    The passive-cooled (zero noise) Geforce 6200s should be able to handle Counter Strike and Counter Strike: Source easily, and are very cost effective at £30-£40.

    Don't expect to play cs:s at 1600x1200 4xaa 16xaf and you might want to throw som hdr into the mixture...

    6200 AGP can also be unlocked to 8 pipes nearly 100% of the time for a very nice performance boost.

    I'd personally go for the 6600GT Silencer. But I'm unsure as to whether its AGP or PCIE.

    He's been using a Ti4800, I don't think he's expecting miracles here. AFAIK he just wants something silent and cheap.

    I had a Leadtek Ti4200 which was extremely loud, just got a MSI FX 5900xt from the dock of the bay for £32 plus p&p. Can't believe how quiet it is! That's in a sn45g as well! Only here the stock fan now.
