im surprised to say that the way people write the Special Reserve mag and rank graphics cards as lower, middle and higher end, it really puts me off. exactly what does lower end mean?

seeing as my PC case is open, but beside a wall, it does actually matter slightly wether it is noisy or not. right now, i can hear the medium-pitched hum of the fans going hard at work. imagine if that fan took up TWO slot bays.

Get a Radeon 9800 Pro.

Cheaper than a GFFX 5800 Ultra, and a better card overall.

Quieter too.
