I am looking for a graphics cards that is passive cooled (no fan = no noise :-) )

My requirements are that it must be AGP and it must have S-Video out.

Any suggestions on good cards?

I have recently upgraded to a gigabyte 6600gt with passive cooling. It 1s really fast and should meet your needs. There is a very good review on "toms hardware" AGP model number is GV-N66T128VP. i bought mine from

good luck

Your case fan is likely more noisy IMO although check on click here

The Gigabyte 6600 is a good card but does of course run very hot. The heat pipe is hardly touchable so you will need a good airflow to keep the case temperature down

nvidia fx5200 (be careful as there are both passive and fan cooled available), mine is a 128mb and has sdideo out. but no dvi.
