"as quiet as my 8800GT" = quieter than my already quiet case fan.

After experiencing my GTX 260, I'm very comfortable stating that if yours is loud, .... its broke.
That's nice to hear This 4870 isn't a bad card, but it is a lot hotter and noisier than my 9800GTX. And I really haven't seen a huge difference in either quality or FPS wise in the 2 games I am currently playing.
Come on EVGA, I'm ready lol!

You are making me sad, my computer as it is right now is almost inaudible, often I have to check that it is on with my 8800GT + Accellero S1

I am guessing it wont fit on the 4870 which I wanted to get, and I cant stand a noisy PC.

Geez everbody here are Nvidia fanboys !! Incredible the amount of ....

First I have the HD 4870 and previously I had the 8800GTX and also the Ultra...

8800GTX was the most silent card I ever had with the 7900GTX.

4870 is silent most of the time, you cannot hear the fan until temp reach over 84 and it never happened but with fur benchmark.

So I don't have to look around I have the card..I can hear and test it. You should look around dude, all reviews mention the GTX280 to be very noisy and the ATI to be quiet.

My friend has the GTX280 and it's a jet engine when it start....

And yes .65nm process is obselete (not the video card). Don't take my words, Nvidia will make the switch sooner than later.
