I agree with the others that watercooling really isn't worth it and you should probably just save your money for a new card. If you really want to get a little more performance out of your current card you can try an aftermarket cooler. I just installed one on my 4870 but it was more to reduce the fan noise than for overclocking. It did drop my temps quite a bit which should help overclocking.

This one might be a decent fit since it doesn't cost a lot:

Artic Cooling Accels Rev 2

The only cards I would consider watercooling is something like the 4850x2 or 4870x2 since the stock coolers are loud and they aren't compatible with air cooled heatsinks.
