You should also consider a quiet case. Antec sells B-stock, you might 
find a good buy there (www.antec.com). Some of their cases have a nifty 
system for reducing drive noise.

I'm finally replacing my remaining "with-fan" video card. It's a nice 
enough card, but I'll be happy to see it go, it's just too noisy.

I've had no trouble with overheating with my fanless card, a GeForce 
7600GS. Your luck may vary.
