Question 6600gt

I heard that the fan on the 6600GT is really loud. Is this true? I also heard that the graphics are pretty good. Right now I play Need For Speed: Most Wanted on like 1024x768, on all low detail with my PCX 5300, and it isn't that smooth on that. I heard with the GT you can play BF2 on 1280x1024 on all High settings, is this true? Thanks.

It's not very loud; or atleast mine isn't.
I doubt it can play highest settings bf2 on 1280x1024 although I haven't tried it. Right now Im at 1024x786 and playing it at medium/high settings very well

its not really that loud - the fans on the Nvidia 5xxx were very loud (or so i was told). I have a 6600gt and i find the fan not to be exceptionally loud compared to my CPU, PSU and Case Fans.

Read some reviews on the particular model and brand of card you are getting and see if they mention the noise level.
