Default Replacement cooler for Radeon X1900 XT

The fan on my old x1900 is starting to mess up and grinds very often. I'd buy a new card but I don't wanna spend the money until after second semester Since a 4870 would be cheaper and I'll actually have time to play games (damn engineering). So I think I would rather find a replacement cooler for cheap.
Anyone know what I should get and where?

I've got a Thermalright V-2 Copper with fan I'd part with. $20 plus shipping. I have the low-profile ramsinks only, you'd have to find something for the other chips.

It will fit your X1900 and also a 4870, as well as most Nvidia G92 processor cards.

I appreciate it, but I think I'll save the mailing hassle and just pick up an Accelero S1 from memory express for 30 bucks
