Fair enough mate.
TBH, I'm not after blazing games performance but I do like speed around the progs I'm using
(Cubase, Vegas, Photoshop etc)

Looks great that card but a bit hefty price-wise for my needs, I'm going to stick to a 150 budget.
I think my HD4800 was about 100 when I got it.
I do have a game of Doom now and again but I could run that off a 50 watt light bulb

Just to be complete, here is an Nvidia card that compares with the Radeon HD 6450 that I mentioned earlier, and it's well within your budget:

MSI GeForce GT 730 DirectX 12 N730K-2GD3H/LP 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card - Newegg.ca

Hi,
Bottom line how ever you use it really does not matter it will be the hottest object in your computers case
Even a cpu has a dedicated fan and will probably be the loudest object outside of other closer to you case fans

It's true sometimes Asus GPU Tweak II have some bugs on their versions. actually the latest one works fine with Amd.

Some sites says that RX460 & RX470 will see their prices down due to GTX1060...worth a look if you stick Amd. Plus it can be on your budget. Prefer custom cards.

On the screenshot here's my default fan settings for them not to trigger before a certain Temp, it can be customized. (provided as example!):

Hi,
Yep the only good thing is asus gpu's work okay with msi afterburner instead
But pity a evga 980 reference card works better than a top of the line "when it was released" asus 980 gpu
Only other good thing is they cost the same the asus was lowered quite a bit 150.us

Well never had any problems with my Asus cards but there again I don't game that much and very simple at that. I have watched Youtube high end game clips and frankly I have to be honest and say I either have very bad eyes (my doc says they are perfect) or perhaps the clips don't go for long enough to get into strife.

I always remember Gary who we all miss advised me NVidia and Asus and didn't like MSI for anything so that is why I have stuck with them.

Doug has been pretty happy with his msi cards I've never had one though.

John, I agree with ThrashZone. Asus makes some good cards, until you need tech support, but the cards are good ones. As far as I am concerned, I don't buy anything except EVGA. There's nothing wrong with Asus cards and Dude is quite happy with his MSI card. But, EVGA is the #1 seller of Nvidia cards for a reason. They make an excellent product and have probably the best Tech support in the industry.
