hi all got a nvidia geforce 8600gts, works ok but cooling fan is noisy,does anyone know if and where i could buy a replacement fan

First thing I'd try is to remove the card and try gently cleaning the dust off the fan. Use an artists brush to loosen the compacted dust within the fan's covering. Take your time doing it in case you damage anything.
