I just want the bare minimum equipment wise and a quite build that will do 1080p@60. Will a reference card actually be beneficial to that build/case? Will the reference cards really be that noisy?

If you plan on leaving everything as is, and not tinkering with any of the settings, then the reference shouldn't be that loud and you should get what you're asking for out of it. The custom cards will definitely be better, running both quieter and cooler, but they won't be out for at least a week or two. So simple answer is, yes, you should get your 1080@60 with the reference, but if you want something that runs cooler and possibly will look cooler through your case window (if it's going to be "on display"), then go with the custom cards in a couple weeks.
