what would work better for cooling a video card

1. get a good 40$ fan and heatsink setup

2. get a water block and attach that to the video card

as for the water block Im going to be getting a cube radiator and Im not going to have a big reservor just some tubing to make sure there is water going to the cpu......
get something like the blorb, that is more than enough. There is not a reason to cool a video card with water, you just don't need it. Several sites such as www.2cooltek.com sell kits for specific video cards and those are good as well. Just get a kit made for cards and such, most newer cpu heatsinks now are too heavy for a video card. An older Pentium heatsink would be good too though. My advice would be to go get a blue orb or a kit, you should get similar results with either.
the only problem I see with the fan is that I live in California,bakersfield

and it gets HOT

my cpu is at 37c - 40c with globlewin 38 and and the case open and a big fan blowing in
