The VF900 form Zalman is considered to be one of the best and I think is the only one that is compatible with the 7900 series. You can also wait until June when Arctic Cooling is going to release the Accelero S1 made specifically for the 7900 series.

Your choice for air cooling is either the Accelero X1, or the Zalman VF900.

The accelero is said to perform quite poorly, but is fairly quiet.

The VF900 would be alot better choice.

Application:
NVIDIA 6800 series
NVIDIA 7800 series (just PCIe)
NVIDIA 7900 GTX
not compatible to most 7900 GT boards (passive cooler for 7900 GT will be available from 06/2006)

Arctic Cooling says themselves that the Accelero X1 will not fit most 7900GTs. Emphasis on the most, but if you're willing to take a chance go ahead. Like has already been mentioned, go with the VF900, best air option right now.
