Default ATI HD 5750 needs new heatsink?!

So I have been thinking about giving my 5750 a new heatsink. The temperature rises to about 60C when playing but that is still normal. Now I was thinking maybe I would overclock it so I would need the heatsink. However, I was also thinking about buying a new graphics card instead. Mine is at 512MB of GDDR5 RAM so I am not sure how long I am going to be able to play games on it. I do not want to invest 50 euros into a new heat sink if by the end of the year I am going to need some thing better. So what do you think?

The stock heatsink is plenty for overclocking it, 60C is low and you probably aren't controlling fan speeds yet. Just go into ATi Overdrive and unlock it, turn on manual fan, turn the fan up a bit, and start increasing clocks. The Radeon HD5000 stock reference coolers are not bad for overclocking, have my 5870 at 900/1300 with the fan at 50% on the stock cooler.
