Real World Labs have reviewed the MSI R7850 Power Edition OC 2GB graphics card, which looks good for gamers wanting quieter performance:

"MSI introduced their latest Twin Frozr IV thermal design to the world when they released the R7970 Lightning, but since they have started integrating it onto other graphics card in their lineup. The graphics card we are examining today has such as design, but instead of using a variation of the high-end Tahiti graphic processor it uses the more mainstream Pitcairn Pro GPU. Which is less expensive, but still able to push pixels at rates similar to the previous generation HD 6950.

The MSI R7850 PE also comes with a 950MHz core instead of 860MHz, so right out-of-the-box it is going perform better than the reference models, but beyond just the increased frequency it also comes equipped with features to provide extreme overclocking headroom. The reason being, this model sports MSIís exclusive triple over feature, allowing the CPU, VRAM and PLL voltage to be increased well beyond the reference specification.

Of course, as will all custom designs the MSI R7850 Power Edition does come with a premium, as it retails for $270 and not the standard $250. However, at just $20 over the reference models the asking price is well within reason."
