apparently it's twice as fast as my current card (5750) and I can get it for slightly over $100 on ebay (plus shipping) used if I get lucky and I can resell my current card for almost as much (the current price on my exact card is $100 since mine is the his model with quiet cooling)

my question is what's the quietest cooling? does it matter if I buy xfx, powercolor, or sapphire? because I wouldn't want the card to be loud when I'm mining bitcoins, my current card is very quiet even when overclocked by 10% and only goes up to 76 degrees and doesn't even turn the fan on maximum at that point

or would I have to spend money on aftermarket cooling? because that would add to the cost

These are back up to $176ea instead of $145.

I got my 5850 on ebay for 180 and then sold the game code it came with for 2btc, which then jumped to 20+ before i sold them.
