Just wondering what everyones experiences are with the fan noises of graphics cards
(... snip ...)
Also any suggestions on quite ones as my wife wants me to build her a PC which I rekon I can put 2 cards in
If you really care about noise you'd probably have to get custom GPU coolers and they're not exactly cheap.
The advantage is the larger heatsinks and better fans (check out the reviews).
Plus, some assembly required, very similar to changing out the heatsink on a CPU:
clean out the old thermal paste, apply new paste, making sure to NOT over do it.
