bad fan in power supply

My computer needs a new power supply, the fan is going. How can I choose the best one to buy? I have a c-400 running win98.

You can change that fan. Lots cheaper than a new PS. You DO have to be careful. Unplug the system from the wall and pull the four mounting screws that hold the power supply in place. Don't unhook the power supply from everything...just get it out where you can pull the cover off the thing. Take off the cover. Lay a folded, thick towel over everything but the fan so you don't get a jolt off one of the capacitors. Take out the four screws that hold the fan in place. Go to Radio Shack and buy an identical fan. Cut, splice and tape the color coded wires if necessary. (some PS fans have a plug-in adapter) Put it back together and have fun. The fan should **** OUT of the case.
