Default Cooler for 9550?

I'm going to buy a cooler for this card from a local store. I was wondering which coolers will fit it from places like circut city, best buy, etc. The salesman was no help.

Whats wrong with the one you currently have? It's a low end card and shouldn't need a change of cooler.

yeah.. i don't think you really need new cooling for the 9550, it's a lower end card. air cooling should be fine..

I'm not 100% sure about this but my gues is that almost any kind of video card cooler will fit. Since atleast on newegg I don't see them telling which cards can use the cooler, so I'm guessing that one cooler will fit all cards. (though some of the coolers are quite big, so don't know about them)

Or u could just go to the shop and since the salesman doesn't know u could just ask if u can return it if it doesn't fit.

Thanks, the reason I don't think the stock cooler will work is because it doesn't have one, just the factory heatsinks. I just want something. If i bought a cheap pci slot cooler that blows directly on the card it will be ok? I'm going to OC it a little. My goal is 400/240.
