nope, video cards come with fans already on them, as well as power cords if necessary. basically you pop it in the agp/pci (depending on the card) slot and install the drivers and you're up and running

however, if you're gonna be overclocking the card, you may look into getting a separate heatsink that fits over the card... check out and look for VGA coolers
AMD 64 3200+ Socket 939
DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-DR
BFG GeForce 6600GT OC
WD Caviar 200GB SATA-II
Thermaltake Venus 12 HSF
CoolerMaster Wavemaster Case
