Fantastic SILENT card! No complaints! 06/02/2008
Very fast - SILENT (in my Antec P182 case) Perfect mate for a High-End AMD/Intel Dual Core or quadcore CPU. This card in a case with good ventilation is SILENT. Did ya hear me? SILENT! This is a SUPERB card. I have read some reviews about the thermal-paste-GUNK on the bottom. No doubt true, but if you dont want to fuss with an Uber-Expensive GTX or break your wallet, THIS IS THE CARD TO GET!
Takes TWO slots? Is that a con? You should make sure you have good ventilation/room in front of the fan and I am SURE this card will be SILENT for you! Enjoy!
I originally purchased the regular MSI 8800 GT Over Clocked Edition with the standard Heatsink+fan version which took up a single slot. I sold that card and picked up this one. That OTHER card (single slot one) was VERY loud when in games. It'd wind up and scream like a JET after 2 minutes in a game and I have a huge ANTEC P182 BLACK CASE with everything but the CPU and mobo in the top of the case (4 hard drives and PSU are in the bottom tunnel completely sealed from top compartment) and it was STILL loud - mind you this was the ORIGINAL FAN+heatsink design. This 4-Heat-pipe version of the card (TWO slot design) is superb and cant be beat except by maybe another card with a clunky water-cooled design or something. This is the off-the-shelf silent card to buy. Couple this with even a modest AMD X2 4200+ CPU and you're set! Make sure you've got 2GB of RAM for Vista or XP and you wont be disappointed!
