    Don't last as long? My passive 9800 Pro is still kicking after 3+ years. As long as the cooler is able to keep the card cool enough it isn't going to affect the life of the card if it is passive or not.

    I like my 7600GS's. I wish they came with Copper heatsinks and attached to the mem. But for no fans and SLI it works nicely...

    Wow... that's crazy low, though. My CPU is 26-28 idle and case is about 20 w/watercooling +9 fans! (Ambient is 68 F in my basement). Anyway, I'm getting a fan controller to tone down my fans when i don't need them that loud because the volume is getting up there after I added the last 2 on my radiator...
    Edit: btw rpg, I've been a member since May and already you've passed me up on the posts. That's pretty freakin amazing...
