Multimedia, AV Geeks.com sent us over one of the best video cards on the market today: the GeForce 86000GTS with 256 MB VRAM and a crazy fast 675 MHz engine clock. The card is on the high side of the middle-end graphics cards compared to others available and it's currently selling below $200. In this article we will test the multimedia performance of the card as used in video playback and rendering support rather than its already well-benchmarked multiple times so far and well-known gaming abilities.

Hi Eugenia -- how was the sound/noise level of the card? I'd like to look at getting one, but my wife is pretty much death on loud fan noise.

Thanks!

The fan can be heard a bit only when the PC turns on. After the USB and other drivers of Windows have loaded, the fan turns off, and you never hear of it again. At least not with video playback/rendering! Not sure about heavy gaming.
