Hi. I need a new GPu for my computer. Last week i orderd the powercolor HD 4870 1gb verson, but the noise from the fan drove me crazy, even with the new fan controller in CCC. So now i am looking for a new card. Until now I have been a Nvidia fan, but i tried the 4870 to give it a go. So what should I Buy next? Btw using the card for Gaming and HD and Photoshop My hardware is : Q6600 4GB Ram Ga-P35-DQ6 M.B 20 " screen with 1680 * 1050 (getting a new 24 soon 1900*1200 res)
More aboutneed ideas
try the gtx260 its pretty quite if you leave the stock settings on the card but if you tend to overclock expect alot of sound.
Get a better after market cooler for the 4870 and you are set.
