its been said before, how long is a piece of string. its down to the individual, do you plan on overclocking or not, are you worried about noise or not, is it for p4 or athlon. my personnal recommendation would be to get an all copper heatsink and arctic silver. try overclockers web site for fan recommendation, they did a review of a few fans a couple of months ago if i remember correctly, cant remember address someone else will point ya in right dirrection.

good luck

"The one that keeps it the coolest"!
I have tried asking for this sort of advice but I realise now that upgrading is such a personal thing, there is no real answer to your question.
Good Luck.
