Using a fan is better.. that way you don't need to worry about removing the heatsinks later without causing damage

All of this is preventive maintenance rather then necessity so there isn't a "correct" answer.
Personally I just have a fan pointing at my V2's but if you already have the heatsinks I'd just go with them, add one to the RAMDAC if it makes you sleep better at night as it wont hurt.

This is what I did for cooling both Voodoo 2 and Fire GL 1000 Pro in my 200Mhz MMX build.
Cheap chinese fan holder
92mm Zephyr Silentium fans powered via 7V mod to reduce rpm
Cards rearranged to allow decent space in between them
There is maybe 1-1,5cm clearance btw the fan intakes and metal sheet cover of the AT case
Should work fine
