Go for 8800GT.
Alpha Dog is good, but is expensive.

I guess he is talking about gfx card heat sinks. The zalman looks like have heat sinks just for the gfx processor. There are about 8 memory chips on the card. Usually they provide tiny heat sinks for them also. Zalman dosnt seems to have them as per lbm's post.

OK, so the memory cooling is what you are talking about.
But I dont think this issue with 8800GT from Palit or some other reputed manufacturer. I always stay away from XFX brand.

xfx = rashi , so you'll run into the same issues as you'd have with ASUS.
your config seems fine thats why i havent commented so far, but why an 8800GT now ? get a 9800GTX. 8800GT's might be older stock

I think it depends upon model and manufacturers.
MSI 8800gt versions are available at around 8.5-9.2K.
Where as 9800gtx is around 13K.
