Edit: As far the pics, I can't enlarge any of them until I reach Halo. From Halo on, it works for me. Actually, just make mine a double of what Saz is having. I'm having issues with the same pics.

Edit 2: zillatech, actually, I have read that some have had problems with the fan rubbing against the enclosure when first getting them. It may have been that problem that the reviewer mentioned (b/c it is a loud and annoying sound and could take a while to go away).
In general, reviews have said that the GT's are louder than the X800's and I recently ditched my X800 Pro to wait for Nvidia's 6800 GT's/Ultras. From what you’re saying the GT sounds like it has "acceptable" noise levels. Also, since you have both the X800 Pro and the GT, which one do you prefer and why? I myself have come to love Nvidia's drivers and game compatibility
