Im looking to get the Geforce8800GTS but not one with a huge blower that takes 2 pci slots. Can we expect to see better looking heatsink/cooling in the future? every new release of video cards manufacturers usually use NVidia heatsink/fan and later use something nicer .how much time generally it takes until EVGA/BFG or XFX release their own cooling solutions ?

Well, the current coolers are VERY quiet, the only way i see a single slot cooler working is if the fan is moving really fast(thus loud) to compensate for the lack of surface area of the heatsink

I wouldn't think so but you never know...
