I personally wouldn't get that particular cooling for my Sapphire 128MB Radeon 9800 Pro.

I have just bought the following for my 9800 Pro:

Vantec ICEBERQ Copper BGA RAMSinks

With

Vantec ICEBERQ4 Premium VGA cooling kit

I will tell you how it goes as soon as I receive them.

...i would stick with the direct exhaust VS. the blowing hot air all up inside the case, even tho it may not have as efficient cooling, it removes heat from the case which in turn cools everything else AND the vid card

I kinda got mine to look cool also

An exhaust would be better if you don't have a few exhaust fans on your case already; I have 4 exhaust and 3 intake.
