Here's only one 7600GS available and it has a fan. I'll wait for Gigabyte cards and maybe a 7600GT with SilentPipe.

Schugy from #ubuntu-de? ;)

I had 2 MSI in my fingers today:
256MB, active Cooling (guess 50mm?), DVI+VGA, 169
512MB, passive (Heatpipe) Cooling, DVI-VGA, 199
...both at local Mediamarkt. That's the first time, that I see a GeForce 7 for AGP there (and one will be mine, as soon as I do NOT forget my EC card at home ;)

The Club3D card is available for 104. MediaMarkt doesn't seem to have the best offer around.

well, Club3D is not really known for high-quality Cards. I got the 512MB MSI now. Nice card and nice performance - really a bit more power than my GeForce 2 GTS (which was btw. more expensive, as it was new, but has worked now great for 6 1/2 years - so time for something new, the GPU itself isn't that problem, but 32MB and no DVI are not really up-to-date any more).

The 7600 & 7800 AGP have a HSI chip (the PCI-e - AGP connect). You can't use PCI-e coolers on them because the chips are in different places.
