    Most people will agree that the NF7-S v2.0 would be the best choice.

    Why is that fan loud racer II? Also i looked at that video card but there is no way i can get it right now cause around $300 is all i can spend on video so sry would be nice but not at the moment.

    thanx neway

    That heatsink/fan is loud because for it to cool well it must be run at full speed. At full speed it is rated at 48dBa which is quite loud.
