I had a pretty easy time finding a replacement fan on Ebay for an XFX 5830
a couple months ago. YMMV, this particular card's fan that was screwed onto the heatsink. Once the fan was removed, I Googled the model # on the back of the fan and presto!
If all else fails, you can always remove the heatsink shroud and zip-tie/twist-tie some 80mm case fans to the heatsink...I may or may not have done that before
