Re: GTX 280 - How is the noise?
Idle is quiet, yes. You will be able to hear the fan when playing games like Crysis, but it isn't really annoying. You have to realize that the fans on high-end cards will make some noise. However, the 8800 GTX was a glaring exception to this!
Core i7 2600 @ 3.7GHz
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked 941 MHz
1TB Seagate HDD 7200 RPM 32MB Cache
