  1. Does it matter to you which manufacturer you want? AMD or Nvidia?

    With that budget you can go for the top end cards
    AMD: 7970
    Nvidia: GTX 670
  2. Does it matter to you which manufacturer- No. But i was reading some reviews about the 7970 being a bit loud. I live in army barracks and that may be a problem. Also will the power supply be up to the task?
  3. Okay, since you are looking for a quiet card, you will want the GTX 670. From either of these brands.

    Gigabyte GTX 670 (GV-N670OC-2GD)

    ASUS GTX 670 Top Version (Asus GTX670-DC2T-2GD5) (Very Quiet)

    You can listen to the cards here:,3217-14.html

    Let me know what you think.
  4. 800W will be more than enough for just a 670. But yes, with a $500 budget for just the GPU, you might as well get a 670 or a 680 if you want; it's about $530. But with a high budget for the GPU, I'm also guessing you're want to spend quite a lot on a new PC. Why not look into building your own?
