Suggestions for graphics board with vdpau and passive cooling


Hi, I'm looking for suggestions what to buy for the following requirements:

- PCIe, should work on the ASUS M2NPV-VM board
- passive cooling (no fans), I can't stand noise
- must provide hardware acceleration for HD mpeg4 decoding (vdpau?)
- I want to play the newest duke3d HRP (using eduke32) in full hd resolution
- Shouldn't be more expensive than the rest of my box ...

Thanks for suggestions and experiences.

Hey, thanks, this really looks like the board of my thoughts ... and it's just a little more than 40 euros in germany So your experience is good? do you use the nvidia driver and the supplied libvdpau?

Yep. I just use the binary NVIDIA driver from nvidia.com, and the libvdpau it includes.
