Already saw that and I would still buy that. That fan noise is with the case open, and on top of that the normal range when gaming is 30-60% so not much of the extreme noise. 60% is were the sound becomes noticeable but still not bad.
Okay, five minutes ago I was sure I am getting ASUS and now I am at the crossroads again
Hard to screw up on any of those 3 cards. They're all excellent. I'd go for the lifetime warranty and the SO version.
