Fanless also means less graphics power unfortunately.

I was gonna suggest you hack a fan to the fins.

Well i was thinking to, just don't know how :P
Maybe a fan like the one in the attachment, and put it under the GPU?

Yes those slot fans would work. You could attach, say, a 120MM fan to the cooler fins with zip ties with some thin rubber strips between them to keep rattling down.

Hiyya 46 (yep I'm a Rossi fan too) Mate I had the HD 5450 in my Sandy build but I had so much trouble with the CCC that I tried an NVidia Ge Force GTX 650 and the thing was a very different animal
ASUS GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU 1GB [ENGTX650-DC-1GD5] - $135.00 : PC Case Gear

I just can't get over the graphics with this relatively simple card.


I was put onto this one by Britton30 and he was spot on with it being what I needed.

well, i would like to have a GTX 650/550... I am thinking, maybe i can have 2 cards running 2gether
My mobo supports that operation, but i have to change my 5450 cause it doesn't support ATI crossfire...
Does anybody have a suggestion, witch two cards can i combine???

your single core Pentium 4 cpu will bottleneck GTX 650/550 cards

I know that, by upgrading my GPU i considered a new CPU (core2duo). without the new CPU, my upgraded card would be worthless.

A core 2 Quad would be a better choice if you want to keep the same board, but they are pricey if you can find one.
