Where to get a new Radeon 9000 Fan/heatsink?

I have had a Radeon 9000 for quite some time... i realized that the fan wasnt spinning at one point in time, and surprisingly it has worked more or less perfectly, but I would like to rectify the situation.  Anyways, does anyone know where I can buy a replacement fan/heatsink? Stock and/or perhaps better than stock.

Most computer shops and electronics stores should carry them.
Try one of the online computer parts sites. ( newegg.com, tigerdirect.com ) I think that is how their spelled.

Not all ppz live in the US, so it depends on where u live.

Your local PC shop should be albe to get you going, you may pluck one off an existing one. You can go to your city's hardware dump (wherever that may be), and get one for free. Or you can order a good setup online, and try overclocking the card (if it runs stable without cooling, it should run stable too at faster speeds with cooling).

So, where do u live?

Use email to ask the questions.

I live in the United States of America.
I assume unless the poster says they are outside the US they are here also.

I have a Radeon 9000 that operates fine without a fan - it came only with a heatsink.  This card doesn't generate enough heat to worry about it.

Well I don't know how it's done in the States, but don't you ppz have to dump your garbage separately to let it be recycled? So all paper & cardboard together, all plastic, all (metal) cans, ...

We have 'garbage parks' in Eur, if you got say a tv that's broken you go to the electronics part of the garbage park and dump it there. Like this lots of parts can be salvaged...

And I know ppz who entered the park with 3 broken PC parts, and came out with 25 working parts. You know, lots of ppz still see a PC like a TV - if it's broken, throw it away and get a better one. 'Broken' may mean 'Disk boot failure'. ;)

No, here in the US, there is no separate place for computer junk.  Most of the time, it sits in the garage, gets old, and then eventually goes out with the trash.  We do recycle glass, plastic and metal, but pc parts don't get their own separate pile.

>>> and then eventually goes out with the trash <<<  LOL   I love trash day. Amazing what gets thrown out, and not just computer stuff.   : )

Hm, that's the plus about selective garbage disposal: If you need something, you don't have to search through garbage that's lying in fromt of someone's doorstep.
Only bums go through garbage on doorsteps here ^_^

Not that it's that much more 'dignified' to go to recycling parks to search for those parts, but at least you don't have to do it in the streets!

Oh, and we 'should' dispose of garbage like I said, there are different garbage sacs/cans for each type ( plastic&metal, paper&cardboard, rest), but quite a lot people just think a lot of garbage belongs in 'rest' :) You don't want to move your old PC to a disposal park if you don't have a car too, eh...
