Default recommendation FX5200 vs. MX4X0

Greetings!

I discovered, that my GeForce3 Ti200 doesn't work very well with TV out (and Linux) so I am going to buy a new card.
I am not going to play any games. The only purpose of the card is to do a nice tv out for DVD and DIVX playback. Furthemore the card must not have a fan, because the computer will act as a multimedia server (with mythtv) and has to be noiseless.

As far as I know only some GeForce FX5200 and GeForce4 MX (460/440/420) variants are shipped without fan and both chips have support for MPEG2 decoding.

So what card can you recommend?

I have had nothing but problems with my FX5200. I'm not sure if this problem extends to all FX5200 cards, or only those made by XFX.

Given my experience with my FX 5200 Ultra and what others have reported, I'd say try for the Mx440.
