Check out how loud the GTX480 is

Nvidia's new flagship is perhaps the loudest video card ever. At full load I'd mistake that for a hair dryer or vacuum. Imagine if you had two or three of these in SLI :eek:hmy:

That is one HELL of a loud fan.
That's what aftermarket coolers are for I guess and there'll definitely be a market for them with the GTX480

That is actually kinda funny :p That is loud. You would get more peace at the airport.

If it is, the legal limit in the uk for wearing ear protection is 85db - lol, imagine having to wear ear defenders simply to cool your pc down. :p
