How simple is it to install? Maybe the question I should ask is, how easy is it to take the stock cooler off?

should be easy... i dunno about the 9800SE, but either ur cooler is attached with pushpins, or screws... in which ever case its easy to detach.

A VF700 in silent mode is still good enough for a 6800GT (not so sure about Ultra and 7800 series), though that's already pushing the limits. Putting it on a 9800 is overkill- Sapphire put the 100% ZM80 series heatpipes on 9800Pro/XT cards and provided a warranty on them, to give you an idea how effective Zalman's coolers are. You have absolutely nothing to worry about.
