    Default Build quality/reliability of HIS video cards.

    I'm looking at upgrading my video card. Current front runner is an ATI 7850 2gig.

    Apparently, one review has found HIS card to be very quiet, which is something dear to me. What are these cards like quality wise?

    If they're rubbish, what would people recommend. I usually run with Asus, but current board and card is Gigabyte and have been known to purchase MSI and Powercolour in the past.

    Did I mention that I like quiet things?

    With most graphics cards iv delt with soun has never really been an issue unless there is a defect or it is stock cooling. Asus make awesome cards with great quality but for the 7850 i recomend the gigabyte card because iv heard good things about it.

    Yeah anything that isn't on stock/reference design cooling should be good. Also if you have a large enough, well built case it will probably absorb all/any noise for you e.g. nzxt phantom.

    Yep, definitely not a reference card.

    I have a Silverstone TJ06 case that does the job, coupled with a Silverstone PSU. Can go fully passive on the i5 750 if I wish - and have done. There's nothing smaller than 3 slow spinning 120 fans in it, apart from the current graphic card's blower.
