I currently have a XFX Radeon HD6870. It's all fine and dandy with Debian 7, but as I heard from many friends, Nvidia is the way to go in Linux.
Also, the fan on it is just driving me crazy. I tried looking for 3rd party coolers, but it's like non-existent than like they used to be.
I want something to meet this, maybe a little more.
The only thing I need, is 2 HDMI or 1 HDMI and 1 DP. Both of my Samsung SyncMaster S23B550 LCDs are HDMI only. I am currently using DP to HDMI adapters. If it's mini-DP, I'll just get an adapter from Monoprice.
I saw a Gigabyte GTX660 at Newegg. Looking at benchmarks, the 660 is quite a bit above the HD6870. $200 is my limit. Anything else i should look at, perhaps for quietness?
