My HD4890 screams like a banshee and is by far the loudest thing in the room when playing D3. Even if I'm just in the game menus and not playing the game the fan is @#$%ing loud! I imagine it sucks a lot of juice in that mode, too.
Since I am happy with the actual performance of the card I was wondering if there is a good lateral upgrade to make that would give me the same performance (or better) but also give a much quieter and possibly cooler experience?
-needs dual DVI outputs for my 2 monitor setup
-would not like to spend more than $250
-I game at 1920x1200
-I'm brand agnostic
I have been researching this for a few hours and will continue to do so, but just wanted to know if any could chime in with their experiences. Also, it's a pain to parse old 4890 benchmarks with modern card benchmarks.
