Newegg *used* to have the "PNY VCG62256APB GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit
GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card"
which was a fanless AGP card with component out (via the dongle).  I've
got the exact same one, just with the fan.  I was considering swapping
it out, too, but it looks like Newegg doesn't carry it any longer. :(
