Suggestions of inexpensive PCI Video Card (fanless or very very quiet) that'll work with Windows 7 (32 bit)?

I just got a very quiet Dell Optiplex 960 (with dual monitor video card) and wanted a 3rd monitor (only a PCI slot available). The PCI video card I got has a relatively loud (compared to this quiet PC) fan.

It looks like, if you want to enable Aero on it, you'll need a DirectX 9.0+ compatible graphics chip with at least 128MB ram. For the offerings available at Newegg click here. As far as being Windows 7 supported i would say any of them would have either built in support or have drivers on Windows Update, if not on the chipset manufacturers website (nVidia or AMD).

"Found one on Amazon. (I'll take a look at Taspeotis' as well:

Windows 7 compatible (one reviewer reported the Win 7 scores and says the Vista driver works for 7)
The heat sink looks pretty substantial.
