You won't find much, probably at most a low end 9000 Radeon card or a mid-range FX card.

ATI 9550 or a 9600PRO are good choices to look at

For your CPU fan take a look at the Zalman 7700-Cu. It has a 120mm fan and I can tell you it cools very well and makes almost no noise in silent mode, it comes with a fan speed controller too. Great buy I think.

i think you should just scratch out the cpu fan, and use the stock to get a 6600gt with the money.

or just have 512mb of ram and get a 6600gt
imo 6600gt and 512 ram > 1 gig of ram and 9600pro
