    Now that I have The Silent Tower my VGA card is making the most noise. I'm trying to reduce it as much as possible. I don't really care about cooling performance that much. I'm just wanting a silent computer.

    I've seen a couple of people ruin their video cards after removing the stock heatsink and installing an aftermarket one. Apparently it's not as easy changing a CPU's heat sink.

    so u want to install that one to ur video card,
    if u know what ur doin then, ok
    otherwise, if u dont know what ur doin, u can screw up ur video card and then warranty wont apply then.

    but u could also place ur comp under a table and that would be less noisy.
    or just play some music and it wont be heard

    Well, it really does? But do it in this humid country and you'll get condensation immedietly. Then its not taking out the heatsink that going to spoil your card but the air!
