Nice cooler, but it only has a three year warranty. Go with this one, as EVGA has a lifetime warranty (as does XFX and BFG):
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Plus it's cheaper, and you get a free game with it.
