As for the rest of the hardware in my particular XPS 710 - no problems whatsoever with FC6 - and I assume with other linux distributions as well.
Yes, I find it extremely loud. Mine has dual 8800s, I don't know if they're in SLI mode or not; I don't even know what SLI mode is. I assumed it was loud because of it's liquid cooled BS. I briefly looked into APCI but with no success.
Quieter would be better. I'm just glad it's not hanging on me anymore. You didn't have that problem? Maybe you're not using the (phony) NVIDIA RAID...?
