Question Best 2D card

Hello,

I search a good chipset nvidia for a home cinema use.
If possible, a fanless with two DVI out to connect to a PC screen and a projector.

It is useful to take a 7300 or a 7600? or is a 6150 as well?

Thanks a lot,

Luc

ps: excuse my for my English...

Geforce 7600gt is a good card. Eventually the Geforce 8600GT will be out and it will be quite popular as the -600GT cards are usually good performers.

I just hope that future verions of the 8x00 cards have dual-link DVI-D outputs so that those of us with 30" Dell displays can watch HD DVDs on our computers at 1080p.

Best 2D only cards have traditionally been by Matrox. Their image quality is top notch and they have some cool video breakout boxes now.

Thank for your response
Do you really think there are a big difference in 2D between a 7600GT and a 6150 ?

This is a 7600GS, not a GT but it's fanless, has HDCP, HDMI, and a DVI port.
