Pasive GT220 to replace 7600GT?

Nvidia GT220 with passive cooling:

I have a 7600GT (256meg) that I refitted with ZM80 to make it passive. Works fine, but I'd like a bit of an upgrade and a speed bump without breaking the bank or requiring active cooling.

Looks very interesting, and with no additional power needed. I have the ECS 9600 GT and been very pleased with the card, also passive with Accelero heatsink.

I can not believe they can use a 58W TDP with passive cooling. It will probably need very good air circulation and then is no benefit (not silent).
I think you can really call a video card passive if is less than 20W TDP.
