the best overall hsf for video cards right now is the CoolJag's JAC313C, its slim so you wont loose a pci slot, quiet and performance is awesome. Just get some artic alumina thermal epoxy to attach it to your gpu and you are all set for massive vid card ocing, you can get it at newegg

cooljag @ newegg

This can work for either your card or even a radeon 9700, its just a beauty, take a look at the pix ;) :D

the cooljags run at about 35db which is very quiet. you wouldn't be able to hear it over your psu fan(s).

course i can't hear my stock msi fan

not sure how people can hear the fans on their vid cards. :confused:
