I have a problem that involves the heatsink of my
video card detaching from the card itself. I have a PNY Verto GeForce 3 Ti 200 64 meg. The heat sink that makes contact with the onboard RAM has detached. Upon investigating why this happened, I found that the heatsink was only connected to the RAM by a piece of Double Sided tape, the kind with small threads inbedded into the tape. My question is this: Should I just replace the double sided tape? And, if so, what type of double sided tape should I use? Will there be a problem with heat transferrence from the RAM chips to the heatsink? Any help will be very much appreciated.
p.s. I tried contacting PNY themselves but it seems they have no email support nor any relevant, automated, phone support. Apparently they don't have the cash to hire an onsite help desk team!

Double sided thermal tape is recommended.

Thanks, I did some searching around the local computer joints and found that the only one that supplies such thermal tape is CompUSA, and they are currently out of stock I appreciate it.
