Well I'm pretty sure I'll need one because I'm used to having my system silent. It's a HTPC as well and the graphics card it has now is an X300 which doesn't have a fan. When I get the 7900GT, I will be able to notice it so I want to get a silencer.

Take it like a man and live with the noise, my PC sounds like a blowdrier when I turn fans on max and run games. I'd just keep whatever heatsink the put on it, quieter often means worse.

get an artic cooling silencer, or a zalman VF-700 or 900

o and btw 7900gt isn't a quiet card, it has an extremely tiny fan and it is running at 100 percent from the time you turn it on.
