Hey guys!
I have a NVIDIA GEFORCE GTS 240.
My fan is currently failing.
So I would like to buy another fan for the graphics card.
Is there one that is below $100 and can FIT inside of the graphics card?

With a $100, you could get a cooler, faster GPU like the 6670.

Will it support the games I play such as Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, DC Universe Online, Counter Strike Source, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin's Creed Revelations, etc.

Yep.

Normal 6670
LP 6670

Don't get the GDDR3 versions. Only buy the GDDR5 cards.

For $110, you can get a newer 7750 which is plenty powerful enough to run the games you play and will use less power than a 6670 while providing more performance.

EDIT: Yes, any of the suggestions given on this thread should work in your tower.

Yes. Just replace the 240's spot with the 6670 and you'll be fine.

Which one should I buy?
The Asus one, the Sapphire one, the HIS one, the power color one, or the visiontek one?
Or the MSI one with the DUAL FANS?

either the asus or msi, it doesnt really run hot enough to need dual fans, just buy whichever is cheaper

I'd personally be more partial to Asus, though MSI is also a good bet. I wouldn't personally pick the others as I've never used anything by those brands before, but will definitely speak for Asus and MSI.
