My System Specs

Smile Video Cards

I actually have a 5970 and a 480. Because the HAF X case was made to accommodate the 480, I added a fan to the supplied shroud. The 5970 was a bit too big for it. Go figure! It runs warmer than the 480.
Anyway, the 480 runs quite cool with the extra fan. Now I just happened to have a 90 cfm 16 db fan, so maybe it's a bit on the high cfm side. hehe.
I think you'll love the 480 if you decide to stay with the 775. I had a 9550 and it was a great cpu.
Enjoy your upgrade, whichever way you go!!!
