Any recommendations on a fanless dual DVI PCI Express card?

I rarely play games, so just need enough performance and memory for Vista/Win7's compositing.

Thanks.

Any recent model featuring 2 DVI's will do just fine!
I have an oldie 7600GS which can handle Vista & 7 with 1280x1024 in dualmonitor without any problem. I chose the 512MB model over the 256MB model because of the dualmonitor, but actually that's not even necessary. And... any recent model will have 512MB anyways :)

Thanks for the reply. Here's what I ended up getting:

I connected:

HDMI port -> HDMI cable -> HDMI female to DVI-D female adapter -> DVI cable -> LCD

Thus, I ended up with inexpensive, silent, dual DVI, plus an on-board VGA port which is useful in my application. (Note that this does not allow simultaneous triple-monitor use, but does allow one to use any two simultaneously just by using the ATI Catalyst software)

Though right now the fanless card is the hottest thing in my box and it looks like I might need to add another quiet fan somewhere to keep the case/mobo temps down.

Thanks.
