Hey guys. I jumped on an MSI Cyclone 1GB last week and while its very quiet and cool at idle (I can't even hear it) once I start gaming the fan ramps up to 60-70% and has a pronounced whine. I'm sending it back and was going to try a reference cooler model. From what I understand its the most quiet and cool one available for the GTX 460. My dilemma is only Sparkle has a 1GB model with the reference cooler: SPARKLE SXX4601024D5SNM GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1G... EVGA has a Superclock version of the ref with 768MB: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003V8ATWW/?tag=tec06d-20 I can get the EVGA model from an out-of-state etailer (I'm in California), but with the Sparkle from Newegg I'm going to get hit with sales tax - about $19. Total for the Sparkle 1GB - $248.96 (with CA sales tax) Total for the EVGA SC 768 - $219.99 Do you think I'd see an appreciable difference with my PC between the two? Basically, I game at 1680x1050 and will continue to do so for at least a couple more years. Oh, and both have lifetime warranties with registration - just have never bought from Sparkle.
