thinking of getting a water block and a zalman reserator 1 V2 for my 5970 ? do you think this will be able to cool my card well enough ?

no go on the resinator ghost rider. They are made of aluminum, and it doesn't cool that well, you should really just get a rasa 240mm kit and then get a block for your card, it will cool much better.
