Hi there,

I'm graphics card shopping myself at the moment (see [1]) and may  
well end up with a nVidia.

Why do you suggest a 5000-series rather than the 6000 or 7000? These  
6000- & 7000-series cards seem to be more readily available & so I  
assumed they were later models. I therefore assumed longer support  
for them in nVidia's binary drivers.

Assuming I was to end up with a 6000- & 7000-series card I had  
thought to replace the fan (which I assumed to be the most common  
factory-installed configuration) with an after-market heatsink. Maybe  
this is an unreasonable hope? Do these cards produce too much heat  
for that?
