Which fanless graphics card?

Q&A

At present I have a 256MB Avanhard Radeon 9550, and my system restarts randomly if I use it for more than 6-7 hours, and if I play graphics intensive games like Half-life 2, that drops to 2-3 hours.

I'm thinking about buying an Nvidia GeForce 7600-based card, specifically this one.

So I'm wondering, do you think the restarts would happen less often with the GeForce card? I'm currently using an old GF2 in it, and the restarts don't seem to be happening anymore. Of course, I want something a bit more powerful for games.

BTW, yes my system and graphics card are out of warranty.

My system is:

ASRock K8Upgrade-1689
Motherboard AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+ Model 12, Stepping 2
CPU Speed: 1999 MHz
1.5GB Ram
