Makes me wonder why they all stick fans on these cards. I have the passive GeForce 8400GS as backup card and it's awesome. 100% silence and it's not getting all that hot.

does any one know if it outperforms a low profile 9800GT?

Um these cards are way faster over a 8400gs. The bandwidth is higher, the card has DDR3 and the core is around 700 something. The 430 IMO is like a super 9500gt between a 220?

My 9800GT Green edition:

The GT 430

The 9800gt blows it out of the water.
