    Ive got myself a graphics card, but i require a cooler for it as it doesnt have one currently.

    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions regarding what i should get.

    the card is an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX OC 768MB.
    (importantly i dont want to accidently buy one that doesnt fit the card)

    thanks

    Alex

    You can get things called RAM sinks. These will cool the ram chips on the card as well. I suppose these are only needed on really high speed ram chips and if the original graphics card cooler didn't touch them I wouldn't bother with ram heat sinks.
