I haven't read into that, but I'd suspect it's exspensive and I'm sort of on a budget. Is it?

Which defeats the purpose of having a passive heatsink. Might as well buy the regular card.

if you're going to get an 8800 card then get an artic cooling accelero s1

its pro, it keeps my card cool 24/7 under stress for like 16 hours straight. no fan on it either. and it's only like 20 some bucks on the egg, look into it.

it dropped the temps from stock cooling as well.
