When I had my x800 xl it was water cooled and I used a cheap and simple appliction from Zalman like these. Whilst the temps were a lot better clocks only increased a dismal 3MHz up to 442 stable core. The XL whilst still a great performer was never renound for getting great overclocks on the core.

If I were you I'd get a new video card, as even if you water cool it down like tucah said you won't get amazing results. Why not just get a better one, such as maybe the 7600gt or if you willing to spend the money a 7900 would be nice
