Default good fan for 8800gt?

Anyone know one from newegg? They all say compatible with most video cards but wondering if anyone has one on their 8800gt so I can pick it out.

It's not on newegg, but the HR-03 GT from Thermalright is one of the best I've seen:
Thermalright HR-03 GT 6 Heatpipe VGA Cooler for ATI and Nvidia

It's been proven to be the best cooler for the GT:

I believe Arctic Cooling makes compatible BGA/TSOP ramsinks and GPU heatsinks. When it comes to video cards, these guys know what they are doing!

the accelero s1 is a good heatsink also, and takes up a lot less room than the hr-03.

what is your amperage on your 12v rail? watts are not what matters. If you have enough amerage, then you are fine. Look up the specs of your psu if you dont know them.

The GT only requires a psu with 400w and 16A on the 12v rail, FOR THE WHOLE SYSTEM.
