I can't really see much from the picture. I have worked on that model before and from what I remember it is really straight forward. Remove the cables from the retaining clips on the shroud which will probably require removing them from the motherboard. Just note where they plugged in at. The shroud is only held in place either with a few plastic clips which are depressed by finger or a few screws. Sorry I can't remember which. Measure the fan and note what kind of plug it has to the motherboard. It will be either three pin or four pin. Then when you get the replacement you will have to do it all again.
As a side note I always try to spend a few extra dollars on the a fan with high CFM's and low Db's. Quiet is better.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
