Looking for a good, "fast" video card for 2D. Would like DVI and HDMI outs.

If it's just for 2D then pretty much any will do.

What's your budget?

there's very little difference in 2D performance these days.

another good feature to look for is passive cooling via a heatsink, rather than a noisy old fan.

Budget is pretty wide open, but I'm sort of a price/performance type.
The reason for the question is I understand ATI and NVIDIA focus on 3D while 2D performance has been left to rot. Kind of understandable since games like
3D performance. I didn't know if some of the "older" cards, say some issued prior to the gaming craze, have better 2D performance than the newest cards.
Appreciate the input.
