Noise awareness seems to be on the rise. Tom’s Hardware Guide has a shootout of nvidia 4400 and 4600 video cards. Tom’s is focussing more on noise these days, and in this shootout they measured the noise from all the cards! The quietest cards were the Abit 4400 and PNY 4600 at 30db. The loudest was 50 db!
