I am running an Nvidia Geforce 7600 gs. I run it with it's  fan
unplugged and with the Nvidia made driver. It has a heat monitor and
even running 3d aps the hottest it gets is one line into the yellow. I
have been doing this for one year with no problems. In the beginning I
was going to put a resistor in the fan to slow it down to a quiet
level but never got to it.

I also mounted the HDs in the CD bays with hair rubber bands so they
make almost no noise.
Then For the DVD player I use a little program,"setcd -x 1", to run it
at speed 1x when watching movies.
