I currently have a sapphire 6970 with an Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme Plus II Cooler and it's effectively silent (my 1000rpm noctua case fans are a lot louder).

What I would like to know is how loud is a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 2GB Overclocked?

Any help would be appreciated as I need to run a quiet computer and it's dificult to find good info regarding noise levels.

Its one of the best cards non reference 680 you can get, as for being quiet..maybe a little louder than your Accelero. Under Idle its around 32 dba, under load much quieter than the 680 reference. You can also create a custom fan curve for more control over cooling and noise
