    I was looking at either Zalman VF900-Cu LED (Copper) Dual Heatpipe or
    Thermalright HR-03 VGA Heatsink or Arctic Cooling Accelero X2 VGA Cooler
    Any advice would be good.

    Actually, the X1950XTX cooler is not bad.
    It is the big red cooler that looks like an ATi Silencer.

    Reviews have shown that they are both pretty much on par, but I favor Zalman
    Looks nicer and doesnt blow heat back into mobo. Get a vantec spectrum to get a few more degrees off, they look great too.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835888112

    If you do get one be sure to put it 1 slot away from the card:

    GPU
    Empty PCI
    ^^^Vantec Spectrum blow uping ^^^

    honestly, i wouldnt change the stock cooler. it actually does a damn good job.

    if you do decide to change the cooler, then theres things you should consider about each of those coolers you posted.
    the accelero just blows the hot air from the gpu onto the mobo.
    the zalman blows the hot air onto the card...
    the thermalright is MASSIVE and has the same problem the zalman does.

    try to find something that exhausts the air out of the back of the case... oh, wait, the stock cooler does that. ;)

    but if you MUST change the stock cooler, consider this one.
