ASUS 7800 GT Top Silent... and lack thereof...

Post by The Internal » Mon Sep 11, 2006 5:39 am

Greetings!

I've been looking for a higher end GPU to power my 1920x1200 Dell 24" widescreen for sometime that was either silent or REALLY quiet... when I read the Anandtech silent GPU roundup (http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=2825), the ASUS 7800 GT Top Silent really caught my attention on the benchmarks.
My old EVGA 6800 Ultra is by far and away the loudest part left in my computer now... my Hard Drives are pretty quiet, my CPU is passively cooled, and the 120 mm antec fans on low setting keep the temp under 60 degrees celcius when my proc is under 100% load for long periods of time (not that this is a normal occurance).
I decided I'd track down the ASUS Top Silent, but can't find a single one available. Does anyone know of a good silent or quiet alternative that can be acquired now?

They were discontinued some time ago with the advent of the 7900GT series.

Try the XFX 7950GT:
