Initially I got a Zalman CNPS10X Extreme for $65 (regular $80).

But I just upgraded to watercooling. Swiftech 220 rad, MCP35X pump, Apogee XTL block, plus blue tubing, two 90 degree barbs and I replaced the fans it had with Scyth S-Flex FDB fans. It was the Swiftech 220 Edge kit. All told it was around $300

Stock cooler is working well on my first build (Jan 2010) so far
Amd X4 B35 clocked from 2.9 on three cores to 3.3 on four
although I can run it at 3.5Ghz, 3.3 is enough for WoW :p 
So I dont need an aftermarket unit just yet

Consider gc-extreme it's cheaper comes in a bigger tube and is just as if not more effective
