Power Consumption and Noise Level of Contemporary Graphics Cards

It is no secret that as the contemporary graphics cards get more powerful and hence require better quality power supply units and more efficient cooling systems. Power consumption and the level of generated noise very often become other important criteria besides performance and image quality when one is shopping for a graphics accelerator. Today we will try to find out what VGA cooling solutions are the quietest and the loudest ones, and what contemporary graphics cards can be called the most economical from the power consumption standpoint.

some corrections need to be made in their report I think when it comes down to sound, the 7900GT fan controller module is defunct on many models, but I've seen some where it DOES work and throttle down, becoming whisper quiet.

There are new BIOS's out there to solve that, but you do need to dl and flash them if you want it to work of course

A cooler needs to take the Accellero approach of being quiet even at 100%.
