Yeah that card is a tad noisy with that fan on it and it does get warm. The grand kids do play alot of video games in the theater room as well as watch ripped bluy rays that I have in the hard drive. This card seemed to be able to do both well, movies / games, when I researched it. The tower is kept quiet as it is in a closet in another room, my office, and wired to the AV system in the theater.
I use the computer to watch the movies, play games, and archive the physical CD,s and DVD's on a high shelf in a closet. Saves the DVD's and CD's from being used as frisbees by the younger grand kids.
