Are there any passive DVI cards? Is there a list somewhere?

Or better still, does anyone have a recommendation for a DVI card, AGP 8x,4x or PCI for Home Office 2D applications only? (No gaming, no over clocking)

ASUS A8V Deluxe, AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 2- Dell 1703FP, Seagate PATA 40 GB, Windows XP Home SP2. (Limping badly on a no name PCI card and one Analogue LCD)

You can go [url=http://www.newegg.com/ProductSort/SubCategory.asp?SubCategory=48]HERE [/url] and do a filter on the following:

Interface: AGP 4X/8X
DVI: 1
Cooling: Heatsink

Keep everything else the same and you'll get a list of video cards that meets your requirements ranging from about $30 to $350.

EDIT: Can't seem to create a link using the "[url=][/url]" tag so just copy and paste the url into a browser.

Connect3D 9550 has both DVI and is passive. It runs very cool and has good 2D quality.

Matrox P650 is very good, but expensive unless you can find one used.

Saphire Radeon 9600 should work well too, for less money.

Both are passive.

NewEgg lets you search based on passive cooling:

Try this.
