on the bench site you had the XTX listed... when I changed it to the PRO it's beat out the 7900gt by a .9 margain. if you can get it for that price, I wouldn't complain and get it!

that and your preference to sound. just make sure you have good case cooling before you go sticking a card that requires ambient air flow within the case to cool it.

how do i know if my case has good airflow? doesnt the gpu come with its own basic fan. I thought the more expensive ones used pipe cooling?

that may be the case, but they still need air flow to cool the chip. are your temps on the cool side? if so, then you should have decent flow inside the case. but usually when a card says "silent" it means no fan.
