I don't quite understand all the dual fan madness on cards that barely get warm when used.
Apparently, fans are cheaper than larger aluminum chunk used for heatsink...

I kinda like that it looks like other Gigabyte nVidia cards. It makes them all easily recognizable as Gigabyte cards, even if it isn't really necessary for this card.

Agreed. It looks like one of the nicer GT430 cards, along with the MSI 'Twin Frozr'-styled model.

why would i want a home theatre card with 2 fans? When you can get one with no fans?

Don't forget that NV branded the gt 430 the "best" HTPC card. The one's without fans are surely not the best! So for your best card, you want the best cooling that will go with it. /sarcasm, of course! Marketing bro... And it will work.

I vote for three fans on it...but better yet get 4670, 4770, 5670 Radeons.

just look how the vga is connected, like on a breadboard every wire is soldered with shrink tubing :-)
