I don't think this is a very good invesment. You'll be spending half of the card's value over again just for a cooler. This is an inefficient manner of spending. I'd suggest upgrading your card instead.

i know my card is fairly out of date, but until the 7800 prices drop i want to squeeze as much juice out of my 5500 as possible.
