thank you so much for responding bout the noise level.
have u tested out the XFC 7800 GT yet? its clocked a tab bit higher at 450 mhz and has a stronger bundle than this evga 7800gt. including games like: X² -The Threat PC Game
FarCry PC Game
MotoGP - Ultimate Racing Technology 2
im having a hard time deciding between the 2 and ur opinion would be greatly appreciated.
