Upgrading from hd 7970 need advise looking to keep it quiet

Hello everyone, am interested in making my Rig a little more quiet, I currently own a radeon hd 7970 vortex by powercolor, I was wondering about the Nvidia Geforce Ti 780 according to a recent article in found here (Best Graphics Cards, CrossFire, And SLI Over $500) the geforce is a bit more expensive but quieter, I was wondering how much more quiet is it really, is there much of a difference at all? I know I could go with water color, but I don't feel comfortable with my ability to undergo such an endeavor just yet. So, basically i'm asking if anyone knows which card is the quietest and best performing at full load preferably under $800.
