Default Passive cooled card for 1080p?

Well, I finally am getting rid of my ancient RPTV and have picked up a new Toshiba 55SV670U. I was running my other set at 720p and had very good results with my 8400GS. Now trying to push 1080p it seems really laggy and a bit jumpy. I'm going to have to drop to the very basic deinterlacres.

What passively cooled card could push the advanced de-interlacers at 1080p? Or will I just need to settle with a bit more fan noise?

This 9600GT card works great with VDPAU for H.264 / MPEG2 / VC-1 including advanced
deinterlacing and ivtc.

Unfortunately it looks like it is unavailable. There are a couple Gigabyte brand cards
still available and I think 9500GT cards are fast enough also.

It runs at about 60 degrees C and takes up two slots. I think all silent cards that can
handle the advanced deinterlacers do. You need an empty slot next to it on the correct side.

I have an Asus 8400GS that does VC-1 that only takes up one slot but it does seem most cards take up two... Something that really really sucks in my opinion, especially if you're using an matx mainboard and don't have a free slot to spare.

Well, I need to check the room in my case but I think the 9600GT is the one I'll end up getting!

Consider buying a cheaper card: There is no difference in decoding speed, and temporal de-interlacing of most HD material works fine on a 9400GT, the 9500 GT should allow temporal-spatial de-interlacing at least for some HD videos.

That's the key... the 9500GT should allow it on some. I'd be willing to pay more for a card that will allow the advanced deinterlacers on everything I throw at it.

It is not so easy to see a difference between temporal and temporal-spatial de-interlacing.
