Does anybody have the XFX 6800GS and the NV Silencer?

Look at this. The XFX version has it but the eVGA one doesn't. Looks like it might interfere with the Silencer. What do you think?

The XFX comes slightly overclocked and includes Far Cry (which I want :( ). Also, is there a performance boost with the new nVidia drivers and an A64 X2 with this card?

well since no one is replying, i may as well give my opinion. i would buy the silencer, and if it doesnt fit, just bend/cut off the piece of metal thats blocking the way. Im unfamilar with warrenties in america, but just about anywhere here in NZ, if you take off the stock HSF, you void the warrenty anyway, so you may as well try it. Taking a quick look on google, i cant find any pics of the XFX 68gs with a silencer on it..upto you i guess :) good luck with whatever it is you decide to do

Yea, I think I'll just go with the eVGA. Besides, their warranty is better, and I think it allows for the use of aftermarket cooling provided that there is no physical damage to the card.
