Quietest card to run 2 monitors

Hiya, I have a gaming card GTX 580 but its very loud at idle and i dont use games much any more. So I am looking for a card just to do my business related work and also work with photoshop. The quieter the better. The only thing is I do run 2 monitors (one at 2560x1600 and the other at 1920x1200) so...

FS: Radeon X850 XT PE + Zalman VF90 + Nexus fan

powerful radeon X850 Xt PE (AGP, one of the fastest AGP card to date) modified with a zalman VF900 cooler then a nexus fan fixed onto the zalman in place of the stock noisy zalman fan. This card is EXTREMELY quiet in this setup. At lower voltages in a very quiet P180/silentdrive setup it is inaudibl...

thanks for that well, i want fans to respond specifically to chip core temps and hard drive temps I can't imagine that the included T-balancer temp probes will be as accurate as the on die figures of the P4 and X850 sensors (or SMART hdd figures). And in my experience its near impossible to properly...

I'm confused. You say you only use it once a month or so. Do you leave media in the drive all the time, even though you never use it? Why not just take the media out of the drive in the first place and only put it in the drive when you're using it? theres no media in there but it still makes noise ...
