    Generally there are lots of different viable options for cooling your VGA card. Perhaps a guideline to look to would be the amount of metal (fin construction) and the fan on the heatsink. Usually the more metal in the form of spaced fins with a good fan is a very good choice. You could go water cooling if you want also.
    This is a good place:SVC

    The "ARCTIC COOLING VGA SILENCER REV. 1" cooler is good, I don't know about the dimensions as opposed to your card but it should be compatible - someone else will neeed to elucidate.

    Ive got a Zalman HP80-A on my 9700pro and it works fine :) ive got a 120mm fan blowing on it at low revs and its very quiet. Plus i still get better overclocks than if i had the stock heat sink on :D

    Yup thats probably the best soultion. It will fit on my 9600pro so it should fit on a 9600xt aswell. Its a good cooler with low noise and is cheap!
