How comfortable are you with working inside your case?
There are a lot of different CPU fans you can get for a socket 775 CPU, Zalman makes a lot of good ones for example, but many of them require you to remove the motherboard so you can affix a backplate on the other side of the CPU socket.

If that sounds too daunting, you could go with something like this, which should attach easily enough to the top of the motherboard in the same way the Intel stock CPU fans do.

All I saw there was some sort of tech article having to do with HSFs, and now it's asking me to register, so I have no idea what you're asking.

A heatsink is a piece of metal. It doesn't wear out. They do fill up with lint and crud. You can remove the fan from the heatsink and blow it out with a can of compressed air and a soft brush. You should do that to the inside of your machine, yearly. If you're dead set on spending money on a 2 year old computer, but a new fan. If you insist on a new heatsink, don't forget the thermal compound

I've got the big round copper Zalman with the blue lighted fan (can't recall the model number) and it works great. But you'll need a lot of room to install it (it's 4 or 5 inches tall)!
