grr, nvidia and their stupid naming system. 430 looks more like a 5xx card but with the discontinued number line. 4xx was being replaced by refined 5xx. This is the first non-crippled chip released with a 4xx number. So once again, like with the 8400's we can't be sure what die it's based on.

Indeed they do. I'm particular about noise as I use htpc's with my televisions. I don't want to watch something and have to listen to a fan. If I can barely hear a fan with the tv off, that is acceptable but it must be very low noise. I've avoided the noise problem by putting the VDR under
