I'm considering getting a PowerColor AX5750 1GBD5-HV2, since its only $90 AR at newegg. Anybody know how noisy it is? If there's something else you recommend I'd certainly like to hear about it, too. However, I do need a vga port.

Yeah, but who knows how loud the rest of his computer is? Here, I know anyone who says something is quiet, really knows what quiet actually means.

It is in fact quiet. Took me a while to get it working, though. Now that it is, I find its quiet, but I don't like quality of the noise it makes. Reducing fan speed via ati overdrive did not work and neither did editing the card's bios. I figure I'll buy a fan extension cable and add a small resistor to reduce voltage by maybe .5 or 1 volts. Or buy an in-line fan speed controller. Hopefully the card will tolerate lower fan speeds.
