A VF900 will be quieter. I'll be the first to admit that the stock fan is loud as hell.

check out the vantec iceberq 6; i'm using it with a 1.5v volt modd'd 7900Gt and it's perfect. i looked at the zalman coolers as well but most reviews placed the iceberq 6 ahead of the zalmans. the main advantage to the vantec was that it exhausts the heat out the back of the case.

also, it's only about 20 to 30 dollars ... depending on where you get it.

here's a link to a review i recently did: Iceberq 6 Review

i'd also recommend researching the arctic cooling NV Silencer series ... another cooler which reviews/tests better than the zalmans and is also much more affordable; don't know if arctic cooling makes one for your card, though.
