Is this really necessary? I am thinking about watercooling my 7800 GTX but am not sure if i have to get a power converter cooler or if i can just leave it passive as it is.

I'm going to leave mine passive. I am however going to setup my Qty. 2
7800 GTX 512MB in SLI with Qty. 2 of these bad boys.

Its not necessary. Its damn cool, but not necessary :D Maybe if you pump some more voltage to the card using NiBiTor.

You can`t up voltage with nibitor. At least it never reaches the GPU on a GTX 256.

Thanks for the info tho. I`ll leave it passive. No need for a vmod. Card OC`s good enough as it is.

In my experience, if you keep the core cool, you keep the card cool. I've watercooled a radeon 9800pro, a geforce 6800gt and a radeon x1900xt and upon water cooling the core only, the ram and power circuitry also runs cooler because most of the heat spreads from the core to begin with.
