Default help with cooling choice

hey guys,

im kinda wondering in circles at the moment so i need some help.
im going to be putting together a machine shortly and am having some difficulties deciding what to do.

machine will be a:

dual core 3ghz
aXeRam™ DDR2-1066 Gaming RAM Kit - Matched Pair Of 2x 2GB Modules
720w odin pwr supply
and the ati radeon HD 4870x2

so here my dilema,

from what ive heard that gcard get very hot which i want to avoid, im not a big fan of water cooling (never used it though), i move my pc around alot so the idea never appealed to me, i see alot of ppl saying that with this card the only way to keep it cool and quiet is to go with water cooling. is there a different route to take? also im looking at getting cooling that has a interface and controls to it.

any help will be much appreciated. thanks again.

Maybe take a look at the Accelero S1 Rev2... something like this will help.
