Cooling A Graphics Card (GTS 250) in an Antec P182

Hey guys, recently been trying to make the P182 a bit quieter as it's my daily and it's always on, right next to my study desk.. soo.

Anyways, with all the fans off (one top exhaust, one upper intake [under the drivebays], and on the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ is setup with the push/pull config.)

With all the fans, minus the push fan on the Hyper212, off; the GPU will idle at 60+, and with all fans on the lowest setting, will idle roughly at 55ish.

When gaming (BF:BC2), gets to about 80ish with all the fans on full blast.

I've seen some third party gpu coolers, but have no idea how they work and perform.

I wouldn't mind ghetto-modding a fan to blow directly onto the GPU, however, the wiring is already tight, so don't know how I'm gonna do that.

Any recommendations on anything, or something to help cool the GPU?
