    Application is roughly the same for a GPU as a CPU, the real trick sometimes is getting the heatsink off first. It require some patience and finess, as you have to wiggle it slowly from side to side until it comes loose from the existing paste. In most cases just trying to pull it straight off (especially if it has cooled or not been in recent use) can lead to the GPU being ripped from the PCB, which is very very bad. Once you get past that follow the same steps for cleaning and application for a CPU. If you intend on using some on the cards ramchips as well, take care not to use too much to avoid it going over the edges and touching the leads.

    Are we still talking about the video card here or the CPU? Well in either case no you shouldn't have to do that.
