Id lean towards a regular model with the regular cooler. Blows air out the case, put fan to 35% in CCC it idles at 42 loads at 62 in a warm room. Open the windows, let the cold devon air in, stable at 825 core 1050 mem with 50% fan. Pretty pointless and pretty loud, but with 15 degree ambient air temp they oc loads. 800/1000 stable with 40% fan in a room with the radiator turned up way too high. All this fun with a sapphire 4870 512mb. Id go for the cheapest 1gb you can find. Screw oc'd cards there not worth it.
