  1. i have a GeForce MX400 64mb. ive been running it without a fan for quite awhile. i recently reinstalled CoD and i was playing it at 1152x864 screen res with the textures set to high and everything else maxxed out. now i want to sell it. should i tell the buyer (they will be using it for 2d CAD drawings and landscaping stuff) that a fan isnt really necessary or should i go out and find one just to humor them.

    oh yeah, where can i get one.

    Doesn`t that card just have a heatsink?

    I`m not aware that they ever did have a fan.

    Regards Howard :confused:

    i believe he has a model made by visiontek, whose original fan burnt out, was replaced, but the new fan failed after a couple of years.
