Have read reports somewhere that the GTX280 fans are too loud .. how about the geforceGTX260 ? aside from speed also looking a quiet video card.

2)Do i need a special cable/adapter for my PSU for the GTX260? Which brand?

my PSU its CORSAIR HX620
A single GTX 280 under load isn't that loud. If you are a noise freak it might be a problem but a single GTX 280 isn't that much different than the single 9800 GX2. SLI is a different story. Three of these suckers running at 100% are very loud and hot!

I think the GTX 260 uses to 6 pin PCI-E plugs, so you should be ok.
