Stupid question but... uh how do you know which fan to buy, I am looking to stick a fan onto my gfx card to cool it down.

Thanks.

Well unless you're up for some modding, in which case any fan would be ok, you have to measure your current fan. I'm not really sure what you're asking?

You don't just stick it on... Does it already have a fan?

The bigger the fan... the more airflow, less noise, and lower frequency (less annoying) sound.
Once again...

it doesnt already have a fan, but i can screw one on its heatsink. also a bigger fan spins less fast than a smaller fan? so it is less powerful/

the larger a fan is, the slower it has to spin to move the same amount of air
