Graphics Card Fan help

So whilst poking around in my computer I managed to snap one of the fan blades on my graphics card's fan. It is a Palit 8800GT. Here is a pic demonstrating what happened:http://i45.tinypic.com/jj0a6q.jpg

Please note that this is not my card but a pic off the internet of a card which is similar enough to mine.My heatsink and everything is fine and the fan still works but once it goes above 70% it starts making a horrible sound. Ideally I'd like to just replace the fan and nothing else e,g, heatsink etc.

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions.

Thanks.

yeah just buy a third party cooler and take off the old one, normally a few screws nothing more and replace with the new one.

For example:

obviously read reviews, and find cheaper. but just so you get an idea.

Would I need to replace the heatsink as well or just the fan? I'm looking to spend as little as possible.

Edit: Yours looks like a complete removal of the heatsink and fan, I'm just looking to replace the fan, the heatsink is fine.

I doubt you can replace the fan, i would get one of these , they are very quiet (some on ebay for sale too may be cheaper)

That looks like it would be the best solution. Do you know where the cheapest place to get one would be?
