Good inexpensive Heatsink + fan for AM3

Hello, the CPU I just bought is an AM3, my motherboards slot is AM2+, and my motherboard's is: M2N78-LA. I was hoping for an inexpensive Heat Sink Fan on newegg, with good reviews, and that will fit in my computer. Thanks :D

    TX-3 is likely your best bet if you can measure you case width.
    Measure outside case = side to side
    TX-3 is 139mm tall.

    If your case doesn't fit the TX-3 you'll probably have to go with the 101.=117mm tall

    my case is 127mm, so I should go with this one?

    Are you sure because this one is 92mm, and has better reviews, will it fit? www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103064
