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?

Since I got the card installed on last Saturday, it still sound like silent, way too quiet than both Sapphire 4870 and Gainward Geforce 8800GTX.

BFG GTX 260 OC use 2x 6pin PCIE plugs from your PSU will be fine, BFG bundled 2x 6pin PCIE adapter. I didnt used the adapter so I used 2x 6pin PCIE cables from my PSU.
