Question New processor but choosing heatsink+fan

Hi, i recently have bought an upgrade for my old comp. by simply buying a motherboard and processor deal, i figure why not just stop over however, the processor i bought was an AMD 64 3400+ (939) pin with a ASUS a8v deluxe mobo. I'm trying to figure out which heatsink and fan would work best for the processor since i don't want to mess it up, and nobody around me has given a straight anwser. I've seen heatsinks and fans for a 3400 xp amd, but i'm not sure if buying one would be safe to go with my processor. Basically i'm looking for performance and budget, hence i don't want to get water cooled for they are too expensive. Please respond back with you opinion.

Indeed they are trance. the Tornado is a bit loud though, even with a fan controller, I like a heatpipe based heatsink.. I g2g to bed since I have the flu, but I will give you linkage tomorrow. Gnight!

why don't you just get the retail processor and save the hassle? After buying the CPU OEM, you'll pay just as much after buying a heatsink+fan+thermal grease than if you were to go retail in the first place. The stock cooling is excellent and CPU's always around 35 degrees.

Not Bad! Here, try this baby out!

GigaBytes 3D Rocket is excellent! Dad has one, and it cools his CPU down 8 more degrees celcius at full load! And that is with the fan running on the lowest setting!!
