I am also considering this card for my current build but the single fan config is a let down for me especially since its down blowing type of cooler. This is looking like the days of HD 5xxx series where there was a 5830 card.

@chickenswagger - if you buy one please post your inputs :)

My System Specs


I would go with the gigabyte,but I have had real good luck with my ASUS as for as keeping my cards cool.But I have the GTX-670 so I don't know if the cooling works as good on a ATI card,but mine is super quiet and never gets above 70c unless I turn the voltage up all the way and overclock the heck out of it and then it just hits in the mid 70's.
