I want to get a Peltier for my GeForce 6800 card and I would like one that will get it nice and COLD for good overclocking. I have liquid cooling so heat wont be a problem. I see frozenCPU.com has an 80 watt one. Is that enough watts? I would get the 226 watt one but I think its a little bit and will hang off the sides and will collect condensation.

Please be aware that the 6800 series cores have temperature shut down features. You might think that I am talking about heat, I am not. For some strange reason, Nvidia made the 6800's to where they shut down if the core gets too cold. AFAIK, people are experiencing problems at 27C or below. At those temps, the card thermal throttles really bad. The last I read, some people were attempting a workaround on this, but I havent heard anything lately. You might want to do some Googling.
