..and if that leaves a bad taste in your wallet... (and if you can wait a couple of months for it to pass customs) -
This thing should be quite ok, albeit not in the FX5900 range:

(14 euros shipped to the US...!)
With hindsight, it is still impressive to see how badly both extremes of the Geforce FX range managed to suck (or more accurately blow, in the case of the FX 5800) for different reasons .
I've got a BFG FX5950 Ultra that had dead fans wh n I got it. Put a nice Zalman VF1000 cooler on it and it works like a champ. Back of the card barely even gets warm with the better cooler on it. Got it for really cheap as well.
Only reason the FX5800 Ultra is so stupidly expensive is because most of them are already dead.
