in that case the gt1030 Kaine just mentioned is exactly what you want - fanless, all digital outs (though I'd have prefered 2 * DP rather than 1 * DP and a DVI )

other option is the new 'entry level' quadros

just wish leadtek would do a fanless model (the gt1030 has a 30W tdp same as the p400, and the p600 is only 40W - so perfectly feasible to do a fanless p400/p600)

Of course DVI(i) ports include five additional pins (the horizontal fin + 4) which carry an analog video signal. This is typically unused for a digital display and quality CRTs are quite hard to find these days.'

So while it makes a lot of sense to dump analog/DVI entirely; it actually hasn't happened yet. Plenty of cards still support analog output.

The 1030 series you mention appears to carry only DVI(d) sockets. This is entirely justified as the circuitry needed to provide analog signals and switching is quite expensive both in IC and PCB real-estate.
