7900GT If you can get it on a rebate or something :classic:

Then theres the 7800GT and X1800XT.

His IceQ3 Turbo x1800gto. You can unlock it to the xt and run it at ~700/700. That would put you in the area of a 7900gt and their extremely quiet.

Also the new x1900GT seems nice, and retails relatively low (around £120GBP here), about the same performance as a stock 7900GT
