I bought this about a year ago for 140$. I was looking for an affordable, good performance card - and that is exactly what I got.It runs silent most of the time, however during some games such as Guild Wars 2, it makes a little noise, and I mean a little. Wearing a headset and listening to the game you can't hear a thing, so there really is no problem with the 'noise'. Pretty quiet.I haven't had a single problem with this card. After almost a year of use, no crashes, no glitch..
