or a Xigmatech: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Xigmatek

They both outperform the Zalman for less money.

And you obviously plan to go SLI at some point with that board and GPU. I'd seriously consider a P45 board like the P5Q-pro and a 4870 for a similar amount of money. You'd have better fps for your gaming.
I agree. Plus with a P45 board you wouldn't have to worry about random instability that NVIDIA chipsets are known for...

I'd order everything from NCIX and just price match all items using Price Canada.
