That link just takes me to the home page. But I would suggest the Zalman VF900.

Zalman VF900-CU LED VGA Cooler at ZipZoomfly

One of the best air coolers for graphic cards.

The only difference is that the one from zipzoomfly, has a blue LED fan. But I would go for the non-LED, since it's cheaper, and performs, just the same.

It would be more beneficial to yourself to just buy a new and quieter card. However the Zalman VF900 is a sick cooler as well.

If you are giving the card to your brother and your only interest is to make it quieter then i guess go for the zalman...it's just that they are quite expensive coolers for a not so expensive card these days.
