I have that same exact 6870 and it's definitely a step up over a 5700 series for most games, but like some of the customer reviews there say it is a bit noisy under a gaming load. So i'd keep that in mind if a noisy card might bug you.
Funny you said that. I have about 40% hearing loss from radiation/chemo when I was 3yo. So yeah, the sound won't hurt me. Just have to crank up the speakers, and I'm good.
OK, I'll just wait for a few more considerations, and I'll get it. I have $150 in PayPal from when I sold my 1156 board/cpu online.
Edit: I can always add on a 3rd party h/s. I had my eyes on the Arctic Cool models for awhile.
