    Why would you waste money on one? I would understand purchasing an aftermarket if the thing is overheating, but you don't even have it in hand yet. You might as well wait until you figure out of it's overheating or not. The GT450 and the GTX460 are both highly overclockable on stock cooling, so you won't be needing one. SAVE THE MONEY.

    Edit:
    Also, note that both of those do not list the GT450 as compatible.

    Why get a low end graphics card for $110 and a cooler it doesn't even need for $60 when you could spend $170 on a higher end graphics card? I've seen GTX 465s and 460s for around that price.

    If you must get the 450, don't bother with an aftermarket cooler. Even though it is Fermi it is slow and weak and so doesn't put out much heat at all.
