What temps are you getting? The stock cooler for the GTX is very good.

AFAIK, That's not too bad! I might be wrong, though.

Those are great temps, if you're going to spend some money upgrading your system, you definitely shouldn't spend it on VGA coolers.

Those temps are fine. The only reason you would need to upgrade is if it's too loud for you.

It will work with your graphics card.

But as stated above your temps are fine.
