    Big problems with Nvidia 8800.

    I've been having problems with my Nvidia 8800 for awhile but it's been bare able up until now. My problem is the drivers seem to corrupt or uninstall themselves at their own leisure.

    In need of a GPU cooler.

    Straight off the bat I've never seen or used a GPU cooler so I have no idea what I'm looking for, but I do know my Nvidia 8800 is getting too hot for my liking (not overclocked or anything either) Anyone got some links to good GPU coolers that'll work with my card? Cheers
