Best Cooler for graphics Card

I currently have a visiontek geforce 3 ti200, I took off the defualt heatsink/fan and put on a crystal orb. But I want better, it dosent really seem the crystal orb is doing that great of a job of keeping the gpu cool
Any other ideas? Don't want to do a whole lot of super gluing, ripping apart etc either. Just want to slap something on there and away we go

oh and has to look good too

The best will probably be a copper heatsink cut up and fixed to the core.

The standard heatsink is rubbish...but im too lazy to mod mine.

If you want a commercial solution then zalman have a couple of GPU coolers.

You really should make your own! It doesn't take that long.

I could tell you a great story about how I slapped my modded CPU heatsink onto my GeForce...

...but I won't. I'll let you read about it here instead:

I wrote the article and made the mod, so feel free to ask any questions.

I just use a large CoolerMaster 50mm cubed heatsink with a nice thick base epoxied to the GPU. I had to mill a piece of the base away to clear the reference crystal on the PCB to get it to fit my GF2MX400.
