Hi ! Can someone tell me which of these cards are the most quiet at IDLE (in 2d windows desktop)?

8800gt, 8800gts, 3870 ?? Its a big differnece when i change stock cooler to VF900-Cu or ZEROTHERM GX815 ??

I know u love passive cooling, but i have so small HTPC case and no space for heatsinks over card or something else. (it cant be higher then then card)

The 8800GTS (Both G80 and G92) in my use has the quietest cooler. I haven't tested a 3870 long-term, however. 8800GT is acceptable, but audible.
