I've been pretty happy with my old Matrox G400. No fan so it's silent,
and it's plenty fast for everything except openGL games. It's
tolerable for quake3 but not really competitive.

I've tried replacing it twice, with a Sapphire (powered by ATI) radeon 9200
and a Geforce 440MX, both are pretty cheap fanless cards, but
I had serious stability problems with both (the 440MX would always
hang on boot). Might be a motherboard issue, my board isn't very current
either (Tyan Tiger 230).
