    Hi guys,

    my dads looking to spend around £100 on a passive cooled card to play some games - nothing too intense, at a widescreen resolution of 1600ish (I think ... might be 1400 ...).

    Any suggestions?

    If you could stretch to the HD5770 Vapor-X the card is pretty much silent even under load. Probably the quietest (non-passive) card i've ever used, and plays anything out there no problem.

    Single slot Zotac 9800GT would do the trick. Very quiet, and can cope admirably. It also overclocks quite nicely.
