Toms Hardware: "The fan produces an incredible racket on par with a vacuum cleaner - there's simply no other way to describe it. You can hear the card even if you're in another room of the house."
Geezus!! That is just freakin stupid! A computer should not make that much noise. I just finished going through my whole rig, changing out fans to try and cut the noise a little. Can't sleep when it's on (freakin AthlonXPs). Now Nvidia wants me to put the equivalent of a 747 in there?? No way!
The last company to come out with an unweildy card like this was 3dfx, with their dual chip and quad chip cards. It's called a desperation move.
I was never a big ATI fan... really dig those totally stable Nvidia drivers... but I'm starting to wonder. Maybe I'll sit out another generation or two and enjoy my 4400.
