Unfortunately the annoying whine in 2D is normal for the FX5800 series. There is nothing you can do about it. On the other hand, the FX5900 cards without turbines (i.e. MSI FX5900-TD128) are virtually inaudible over your cpu fan.
Any idea what causes this whine?
Coz I've tried stopping the fan with my finger, and in 7 out of 10 tries, the whine will still persist even when the fan is not spinning.
You mean that the newer FX5900s' turbine fans also whine in 2D?
