PowerColor SCS3 R9 270 2GB GDDR5
Interesting card even at 150W but I can't find it for sale anywhere.

It'd be nice to see a R7 360 fanless since it is only 100W or an R7 370 fanless since it's only 110W

The R7 360 would be better since it has true audio built in.

Essentially I'm still waiting for something to replace my HD7750 go green which is a whopping 55W.

But AMD isn't making anything retail below 100W so I'm just waiting for a Rx xxx style product that has a nice open heatsink that I can either run fanless or strap a 120mm fan onto.

Hey Dhanseon - Both the Palit GTX 750 and the Palit GTX 750 TI would both be worthy upgrades to your fanless R7. The Vanilla GTX 750 is faster, and lower TDP than your current card.

There seem to be a lot of passive GT 1030s

Very low powered (30w), not a powerhouse gaming wise, but has 2GB of GDDR5 so seems fine for indie games and high res displays.

Palit KalmX 1050ti is the highest Nvidia. Not high enough! You really need 1060 6GB even for 1080p.

Fanless cards are great and they were part of two fanless system builds I had.

I also recommend video cards that shut fans down when you're not gaming and only turn them on when temps hit a preset. I've had a 750 ti, 1050 ti, and now looking to get a 1650 ti with fanless mode.

Now, this is an interesting list of fanless VGA cards.

I remember the days where all graphics cards look very simple. Today GPUs are very powerful and getting bigger but I think they are more power efficient and useful I've been using my GTX 1080TI for quite some time and it never failed me when it comes to video editing and rendering plus gaming. It can still power my 4k monitor
