Dimension 8200 AGP gfx

What do you think the best option is for an old dimension 8200 gfx card without investing much money...

I have an Asus GeForce 8600 GTS (1GB) that the fan stopped working on and overheated/shutdown several times before I figured out the problem.

I have a Jaton Radeon HD3450 (512MB) in it currently.

Would it be worth trying to find an alternate fan/cooler for the GeForce 8600 (4 or 5 tiers better than the 3450)? Or once its overheated multiple times is it going to continue to be problematic anyway?

oh...AGP only.

Niice. Assuming I can't look up AGP cards. ok, well. reread the post. Maybe I shoudl clarify, not much money means, the cost of a new cooler fan.

I spent the money on a 49$ HD3450. to get the budget is much less than that.

Not going to drop 112$ into a 11yr old box.

Would be nice to get advice without attitude.
