Not much point in OCing it then... Are the blower style coolers significantly louder/hotter than dual fan coolers? I would have gone with the Gigabyte Windforce but I had to RMA my Gigabyte 5850 twice because they sent back the same card. Thanks for your help!
The Windforce is a good card just lower clocks. Its one of the largest too but its thinner. The fans on the ftw will be louder, but the exhaust is blown out the case not around other components.
