I suggest a vf-900 if you want somthing really quiet.

There will just be some screws on the back of the card that you take off. All you will need to do is use some is take off the thermal pad with somthing(credit cards work good) and then use 99% isopropyl alcohol to get any remaining off. You dont need 99% but it works the best, I use 91%. Then just apply the new thermal paste and follow the instructions on how to install the new heatsink. It is really pretty easy.

Video cards have RAM too, thus GDDR3. You place RAM heatsinks onto each section of RAM.

well it depends on the cooler, for mine the plate covered both the GPU and the ram so i used pads on mine, which mine came with, for the zalman everyone is talking about, you use little blue heatsinks that zalman sells. eather way the ram does need a way to dissapate heat
