Well I'm sort of on a budget. I can go anywhere for around $380 and $250. I'd like to go cheap as I can without sacrificing performance.
T he card I'm looking at may not be the one I actually need. I'm just looking for a good card that's good enough to be able to keep up with games like Crysis and possibly games that are going to come out in late 2010 and beyond. I'm running a Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz so I shouldn't have a problem with bottle necking. Maybe someone could help me out.
I am using a GeForce 8800GT OC and the stock fan that came with it was ridiculously loud even idling. So much so that I had to modify it with a case fan and a PCI slot fan to keep the noise and cooling adequate.
I'm just looking for something not so loud. Its not BIG deal, but I always want to consider it.
