    I have an older computer with a PNY GeForce 7300GS video card that the fan on has recently started making a noise, so I suspect it is eventually dying. I want to replace the fan (not the card) but every spec I read on the card says "with fan".. no sizes, no dimensions, specs, nothing. I ordered one fan that ended up not fitting the holes on the video card. I would buy a whole new video card but my power supply is only 300W and a lot of the newer cards require more, and its sort of tight on space, so I would be worried about it fitting (also cost is an issue.. the card itself works fine).

    As far as I can tell, my exact video card is:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133016

    Any help on what fan would fit, or where I can find the info?

    With the right heatsink and decent case cooling, that graphics card can run fanless.

    I have one doing just that.
