Only like 80$ less or something so might as well get the 8800gts 640

Is there maybe a cheaper cooler or something that can bring this down?

What CPU will you be cooling?

The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, is a great cheaper alternative. Only $20.

Would it be possible to OC the e6750 to around 3.6 with this cooler?

I heard they are monster Overclockers

I'd say it's pretty possible, because they are known to hit the high 3.0GHz range.

What would bring it under $1200, is if you drop to the 8800GTS 320mb. Or get a cheaper case.
