I'm entering the market for a new video card; having had a good experience with my current 4870, I'm currently looking at the new 6870 cards. Problem is, the room the computer is in gets quite hot during the summer months (which here in southern California is around 8 months long), and my home does not have air conditioning. So, I'm looking for an after-market cooler that is compatible with the 6xxx series. Preferably a quiet one (is noiseless possible?)

My current case is an Antec P182 with a MSI P43-C51 Motherboard running a Core 2 Duo E7200 CPU, if any of that makes a difference.

They have finally come out with some 6870's that come with custom cooling as well, so you don't have to mess with the cost and then installing it yourself.

Check out the MSI 6870 Hawk:

Thanks for the quick response! That looks like a nice bit of kit, and only about $20 more than the one I was previously looking at.
