I was on newegg and saw this (Item#: N82E16835186052) aftermarket VGA cooler. In the overview section it states, "Featuring two 92mm PWM fans with a maximum cooling capacity up to 250 Watts." When it says, "cooling capacity up to 250 watts;" what does that mean?

the thermal properties is measured by watts, they usually listed on the spec.. (TDP / Thermal Design Power)

example : (to be updated)
pii 955 BE has TDP 125watt

quoted from cpuworld (this is for Processor but it also same with GPU)
"The Thermal Design Power (TDP) is the average maximum power a processor can dissipate while running commercially available software. TDP is primarily used as a guideline for manufacturers of thermal solutions (heatsinks/fans, etc) which tells them how much heat their solution should dissipate...."

so would the cooler that I posted be a good cooler for a 7870 GHz Edition?

AFAIK the the 7870 GHz has the TDP 175w so the cooler will sufficient..

but u must remember when using custom cooler is the cooling of other component that is the VRM and Memory... the custom cooler will include kit for it (heatsink, pads, etc), but if somehow it doesn't, try acquire it first.........
