This machine.

Because its proprietary I'm not sure what would fit.  The fan is crap and that's actually all I need but figured it wouldn't hurt to replace the heatsink also.  Thanks in advance.

What is the problem with the current heatsink and fan?
Too much noise or the processor overheats?

As dbrunton said, for AM2+ there are a lot of coolers, but you should tell us what you're looking for and your budget to make a good recommendation. The case is a mid-size ATX so most coolers should fit in it.

This one will fit perfectly.  Plenty of clearance.  Thank you.

Well I just realized that this fan has a four pin connector.  The fan I have is a 3 pin connector.  Is there a 4 pin to 3 pin converter?

See http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-012074.htm

That implies that your fan should work on the board if you plug it in as the diagram shows but can't necessarily guarantee it.  If it does work it will be running at full speed.

There are 3 pin fans out there as well.  See http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-A4022-TR2-R1-Amd-Cooler/dp/B000KX65K6
