    Hello, my son has a macpro 2008 and the fan has stopped working on his graphics card. We would like to try a replacement fan and hope that the card is still alright. But I'm having a hard time finding a fan. Has anyone here done this and have a part# for a fan? Also, if he does need a new card, what is the recommended card in the lower price range?

    This is the one to go for...

    This is one of the best coolers around. It has no moving parts (passive) and works great on ATI cards in Mac Pros.

    Here is a video on how to install the cooler:

    The examples are on a ATI 3870 but it works for the HD2600 as well.
