My friend is selling me his ATI VisionTek 9600 XT for pretty cheap. The only thing wrong with it is that the fan needs replacement. Few quick questions...

Should I buy aftermarket or oem?

Where can I buy a replacement fan? Online only or a local computer store?

And can i install it myself or should i leave it to a pro?

Thank you!

PS: I need to fix this crap ASAP. BF 2182 awaits :p

You should be able to install it yourself, and I suspect it'll be easier to find an aftermarket model.

I agree with JohnWill. Changing a VGA cooler is easy. Playing BF 2182 on a 9600xt may not be as simple.

Good luck.
