    Question Cooler Recommendation for ATI 9550?

    Hey all, long time since I've been on the forums but I need some advice so here I am :)

    I'm considering buying the above card after hearing it has pretty good Overclocking capabilites and is alot better than my current card. So...
    Does anyone know of a relatively cheap (say $30 AUS) cooler that will assist my O/C? And would ram sinks be recommended?

    Cheers, all feedback will be taken on board :)

    You should be able to get a Radeon 9600 for around the same price, and it's much better. I'd get that.

    I'm not entirely sure about that, sure they perform a little bit better. But the price difference is bigger than the performance gain. Around my neck of the woods (Australia) the cheapest 9550 I can find is for $96.90 where as the cheapest 9600 I can find is for $156. I know this is in cooling and not the graphics forum but I thought I'd still point that out, and ask one more question.

    Would the 9550 Extreme edition be worth it? 400/500 Clock Speeds for around $160 in most benchmarks it appears to gain a bit on the regular 9600 but once again I don't think the increase in price is justified.

    Hence why I was wanting to see what options there are for a 9550 cooler to gain extra figures from if I decide to go ahead and purchase one.
