I was going to say almost the same thing. I run a Nvidia 7600 gs with
the fan unplugged and it runs at 68 deg. I has for 2 years with NP. It
also costs about 40$. It is just fine with 3d games to. I am not a
hardcore player but I do play sometimes and the card has never been a
problem. Drivers are also very easy to deal with most of the time. I
can't say what is better 7600 VS 7200.
