VREG Heatsink for 1 mb GTX 460

I am looking for feedback/advice if I should buy the VREG heatsink for the 1 mb EVGA GTX 460 that I just purchased (01G-P3-1370-TR).

I am building a new system (Intel i7 950, Asus P6x58d Premium, 6 mb corsair memory), and I may want to overclock this card in the future.

Would it help to have this heatsink for overclocking? How much of a cooling benefit would there be? Will there be a greater risk of burning the card out if I overclock and do not have the additional heatsink?

For $10, it might be an easy decision to just add it now, but any help that anyone could provide in making this decision would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you!!

  1. I'd suggest saving $85 by grabbing the new Asus Sabertooth rather then the "long in the tooth" P6X58D and using that money to grab a factory overclocked EVGA 470 ($249). Normally, I'd say OC it yaself but for $10, might as well have the OC guaranteed.
