    Thinking about getting a Sapphire HD 4890 and i would like to know how hot does it get when gaming and how loud, i hear the 4890's are pretty loud and my CPU fan is already loud when gaming so i don't really want a whole lot of noise going on.

    Going to be doing tons of gaming and i don't want it to burn up while sounding like a jet.

    So how bad is it?

    Well i used a 3rd party utility to set fan speeds on my MSI reference 4890, and it's LOUD, loudest thing in my whole system idling at 35% at 120 F. If i let the bios handle the fan, it does 140F idle and still louder than the rest of my case but not by much.
    As for noise level of my system to get a general aspect (i have no dB meter) It's quieter than my fridge (before i got the 4890). Or quieter than the central air/heat flowing thru the duct work.... kinda hard actualy to compare it, it's near silent.
