    I'd get another 460 or just wait for a bit if I were you for 570s/580s to be cheaper or grab a 6970 etc .

    Your XFX 750W seems to have the same spec as my HX750 and the 480 has worked fine with a more demanding X58 i7 on same PSU. I can't seem to access jonnyguru atm to double check though.

    Mini oven is quite right. The default fan settings let it run up to 91C under load. If you apply 75% fan it will normally stay under 85C (bare in mind my ambient temps are high with 4 other computers).

    Doesn't sell it very nicely but I'd rather you know what it's like before you make a decision. Once you play games or do folding@home it is very smooth though. Far better than 4870X2 I had before it.

    It has a rush of air sound rather than a mechanical one. It is the loudest part of my Silverstone FT02 computer.
