Question which Nvidia / Ati GPU ....

runs the fastest without heating up really bad and fits the motherboard without blocking the RAM modules as well.

Also what would be the recommended PSU for that card?

Would it be sufficient enough to watch fullscreen movies on a 19 or 20 inch widescreen lcd monitor?

please note --> i want cards that can perform really well without overclocking ...

less heat and performance for the buck is my priority...

help a brutha !!!

8800gtx is the best on the market with a good cooler, if you take the cooler off, throw some good thermal paste on there, and slap the cooler back on you can even overclock it.

i think a sufficient psu would be 500-600watts.

Yeah you don't need a 7900 for movies.....
At most maybe a 7300 or media center type video card.
