So, you have sales figures for the 6990? Did your friends at ATI tell you them? Or do you want to make some up too like you did for the 590. lol
Yes, everyone knows the 6990 is loud. At least it doesn't burst into flames when you play a game on it. I'd rather have a loud card that works, than a quiet card that's faulty. TBH, like I said, I wouldn't buy either card as I don't want a hair dryer in my pc, nor do I want a card that needs special drivers to supposedly keep it from going pop.
btw, I love how my joke comment set you off to go find info on the noise of the 6990 for some reason. I bet if I said just marshmallows instead you would have done the same. lololol
