I'd wait for the ATI Radeon 9600. It uses the RV350 core, and that has all the video processing/hardware goodness of the R300 and R350 cores, but its manufactured at a 130nm process(compared to 150nm for the R300/R350), and its some of its 3D hardware circuitry is removed, allowing for it to be clocked faster, run cooler and most importantly, run with only passive cooling. Can you say, great image quality/DVD performance AND silent?
