With the GT220 available these days, with supposed support for full
bandwidth LDPCM (7.1 stuff for the new "HD" codecs), I do not see any
reason to chose anything else when looking for a discrete board.

It is low power, so the thermal envelope shoudl be low too, thus only
requiring limited cooling setups, i.e. more silent fans.

I know that my 8400GS life inside my system will be short.
