your post was kinda confusing
but here is what I got.
you got a video card that you want to put into your backup PC
but you removed the heat sink / fan before now you want to put it(or custom one) back on
asking what thermal stuff you should apply to the video card heat sink

if I am correct
just the same thing you'd put on a CPU

whats recommended now?
Tuniq TX-2
or Arctic MX-2
I get confused cause of similar name =\
but I think either one would be good.

Because it is like half the price of the MX-2 and performs almost the same
