They are last generation cards, they are kind of old now. Thats why you can't find them. Also they get very hot, I wouldn't personally recommend one.

Basically what Helltech has said, but you can usually find them still on ebay and craigslist. I don't recommend that because it's not exactly certified meaning something may have happened to the graphic cards and they may not mention anything.. you know? :p

Yes it will. Don't use Artic Silver that stuff is ancient, I definitely wouldn't pay extra for it. I mean it doesn't really matter WHAT you use, you will only get a 2-3 degree difference. Gelid GC Extreme is amazing and I got a tube of it for 2.99.

But yeah my a GTX 570 is good enough for Ultra at that resolution, you don't need the 2.5GB version, you will be fine with the normal one.

Better yes, but only if you plan on gaming at resolutions higher than 1080p/1200p.
