I bought this exact one a while ago from Novatech and it's been  
working great for me: http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/Components/Graphics-Nvidia/Nvidia9500Series/9500GT512MB.html

Although the picture shows a fan on the card, there was no fan on mine  
(just a massive heatsink) - also has HDMI -  got my HDMI audio working  
using the SPDIF socket on my motherboard, hooked in to the SPDIF in on  
the video card - much less hassle than getting audio going out through  
the audio stuff on the card. The manual didn't mention it, but it was  
marked "SPDIF IN" on the board.

VDPAU works a charm on the card - haven't run in to any problems with  
it in several months of using VDPAU, am using the Advanced 2x deint too.

If I remember, I'll fish out the box and let you know the exact  
manufacturer, as there's a chance that Novatech have changed which  
cards they call their own (it's happened in the past), but you can  
always buy it and return it if it doesn't match - you have 7 days in  
the UK for anything you buy online.
