If you're not planning on gaming, just using HD for video and compiz 
then a low powered nvidia card would be fine. An nvidia 8400gs only 
costs about £25 from ebuyer and most of them have passive cooling (no 
fan and therefore silent). With these nvidia cards you can playback HD 
video with very little cpu usage and they are power efficient too.
