you don't need an after market cooler but if you still wish to then get the duorb.
P.S. mine goes up to the high 70s.

Here, I just installed a DuOrb on my 8800GTX. Awesome results! Plus, it is a breeze to isntall, and takes up less space than the original heatsink. Remember, the HR-03 takes up a ton of space when used with a fan.
