lukaszr what is your case? You may not need more cooling. But I guess cooler is always better.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't see the case before.. With the Antec 1200 I think you have plenty of air circulation and cooling. The video cards are dual slotted anyway?

The 9800GTX's cooler exhausts hot air out of the case, you don't need extra cooling.

G92's thermal threshold is around 115c, you are no way near damaging the cards.

I use a PCI fan. It is exhaust of course. I have it right under the CPU HSF and above the GPU. My the fan on the heatsink blows downwards. Theoretically the PCI fan has the hot air hitting it and going right out. Then I have the GPU fan facing downwards. Everything runs pretty cool. Out of the system, CPU, HDD, and GPU, the CPU is the coolest by a good 7-10C.
