I think that Sanjin tested the cards with the cooler manually set to max RPM to keep the heat down. Anyway I still think it's an overstatement to say that the 8800GT is very loud, but I'd still go for a dual slot model just in case.

Ah, that might explain the difference, thanks.

And I agree with you that a model with decent cooling is a good idea, either the Palit with dual slot or the announced Gigabyte card with pre-installed Zalman fan.

You write, that the standard cooler of the new 8800 GT is quite noisy. I'm a bit confused now, as Computerbase.de in their review [german with graphs] states the opposite: The 8800 is really silent, but gets quite hot.

So either one of you is wrong, or there are huge differences between different 8800 GT manufacturers.

Concerning the new Palit GFX, do you know when it will become available in central europe?

After reading your article "Gainward BLISS 8500GT goes up to 760 MHz" I thought once again that the testbed used does not really fit an entry-level card. I don't think there will be many C2D 6800 Extreme cpus paired with a 8500GT. Sure, it is easier to compare the performance of a whole range of graphics cards that way, when all cards - low to high end - are tested with the same cpu, but the benchmarks results gained that way aren't of much use when building a low or mid range system.

Maybe you could think about testing graphics cards with at least 2 different cpus/configurations, low and high end (new quad core, old single core) or even with 3 and add some cheap dual core cpu.
Such a test setup would be of use even for high-end cards, as I doubt that many ppl really need the best quad core cpu and a 8800GTX in their systems and just want to know which cpu/gfx combo gives the best price-performance ratio.

I think the typical question is not "what is the fastest possible cpu/gfx combo", but rather "which cpu/gfx do I need to get the best bang for the buck with my budget".
