Sounds like it, thanks. Ill probably get a gtx 460, the reference cooler is fairly quiet apparently and the MSI cyclone is quieter still.
I have the Cyclone 1gb. I think it is pretty quiet, yet is it supposedly not up to SPCR silence standards. Should be fine for the casual silent seeker. The fan spins relatively slowly, but has harsh acoustics.
The stock settings have the fan idling at 50% and loading around 80%.
You are able to change the fan speed curve with the included Afterburner software. Unfortunately, the minimum fan speed is 40%.
At this speed I idle at 31C and load with:
MSI Kombustor GPU Stress Test: 70C
Thats pretty solid temps considering its at the lowest fan speed possible. These temps were taken in an open case, so in an acoustipacked P182, temps could be significantly higher.
I'm very happy with this GPU, its the most stable, quiet, cool, capable, green, and flexible GPU that i've ever owned. Its also the most expensive though.
