How do I find a fare price for a top motor fan?

What I need is a cooler for my computer, specs as follows:
Model# DF1209SM(DF1209SM-1)
DC12V
0.25A
appx 4"x4", 6 bladed fan.

Made by DYNAEON INDUSTRIAL CO. LTD
Made in Taiwan

I have goggled it, but have been unable to find a place on line to buy it. The local store(Havre,Mt) wants $78.00 for this puny little fan that looks to be about $8 worth of merchandice.

I can install it myself, any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Why can't you take a fan off the shelf of a store, buy it, and install it?
A fan is a fan..

computer fans are usually measured in millimeters...an 80mm fan fits in approximately at 3" hole. A 120mm fan is approximately a four inch hole. Sounds like you are probably talking about a 120. Go to www.newegg.com, www.zipzoomfly.com, or www.tigerdirect.com. All these should have fans in stock, a 120 mm fan usually runs you about 8-15 dollars, depending on how much air it moves, how quiet it is, and a couple other things. Let me know if this was what you are looking for (it sounds like it).
cheers,
jeff

You were very close, actual diameter is 3 and 1/2". Tiger and zipzoom both had it for under 20.00 with s/h.
My wife ( woulden't ya know it, the shopping queen) found it on e-bay for 3.99, the shipping was 4.99.

Thankyou for your help.

it's going to be important to get the correct one though. Computer fans have two different types of connectors. A 3 pin connector and a 4 pin connector. If the fan connects to the motherboard, make sure to get one with a 3 pin connector. If it connects to the power supply, it will probably be a 4 pin connector.

as it turns out, its a 3 pin. Thanks for pointing that out. The one I had selected has an adaptor for 3 to 4 as well, the specks match perfectly, but ya never know. I will have it in a few days, and I'll post the results as soon as I know .
again, thankyou for the help. I am new here and look forward to helping others when I see something I'd be qualifyed to provide help for, in about 20 years or so. (lol)

try newegg.com, they have good prices on computer items, not sure if what you are looking for is on there but it's worth a shot.
