What about the noise level of the fan? Is it noticable?

well when idle i can't hear it, but at load i'm guessing it might or might not make a LITTLE sound...i mean the card is at load only when you play games and i always have my headphones on so i don't really hear anything

Humbucker - DUDE! Don't be scared! Buying a 6600GT is a smart move that i'm sure you'll be happy with. Relax about those 18 pages of problems i'm almost positve they are all the problems that "Could" happen, not "will" happen.

rest assured, those problems listed are all what could happen, not what will happen.
