I'm looking for a relatively quick decision here. My workplace apparently gives me a "gift" after 5 years here, valued under $400. I've decided a new video card would be good to replace my Radeon 7200.

Mostly, I use my PC as a DVD player, but I do play the odd game, and I want something that would be a good value for the gift above. Also, my basement isn't air conditioned, so it gets hot down there after a while. Also, I'm trying to keep the noise down for my movie playing.

The Tachyon cards have interested me in the past because of the hardware-controled fan. Currently, tho, they are only available for the 9700 pro, tho.

The Sapphire Ultimates also interest me because of the huge heatsinks, but I wonder if the 9800 pro's heat generating capabilities would be too much for a closed case in my basement? Also, which of the 9700 pro cards would do better for me?
