Default Thermalright IFX-14 Extreme

I am ordering a new h/s for my q6600 and a new h/s for my 8800gtx...
I am getting the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme but then i saw thw Thermalright IFX-14 Extreme, so i was wondering what one is better the TRUE or the IFX?
And im getting the HR-03 Plus for my 8800gtx, is that a good h/s for it?..
i will also be buying fans for them...

The IFX and TRUE are kinda tied. The IFX is cooler by a couple degrees, but the TRUE makes up for that loss, in smaller size and lower cost.

is it possible to mount a HR-03 Plus so that it curls around the gpu card and sits above the back side of the gpu card
