View Full Version : Ask the pros, X1650-XT Silent card, fanless
05-01-2007, 04:02 AM
Thinking about purchasing a X1650 XT fanless card...my pc have good air circulation and lots of room. The reviews I read, most say it's good to great.
It will be replacing a ATI-X600 in a Dell XPS 400 with a 375 Watt P.S.
Like to keep it quiet, feedback?
I'm a big fan of silent video cards. I have the silent 7950gt myself. Might want to compare prices against the 7600GT fanless solutions out there though, you might get more bang for your buck. Other than that, yeah, good call.

i've been checking out the 7600 also...both are good the review and seem evenly match. i've own ati for years, people i know like both...tough call here
thanks for you input on the 7600..

The silent solutions are great, especially if you don't go into your case much... I have lost many a good card from premature fan failure.
As long as you don't want to do any OCing - silent is good...

Looking at a "PowerColor X1950 PRO SCS3" $230
recommends a 450WPS, 30 A/12V fully loaded..
mine is a 350WPS up to 30A/12V not fully loaded i think...
think it will work?
friends of mine running 7950 w/ 300WPS with no problems so far..
think it should be ok..hope
