Default best athlon xp heatsink (under AU $50)

I have a Barton 2500+ that overclocks to 3200+ easily but gets a bit hot so im interested in a new heatsink to get a bit more life out this system of mine. I have $50 AUD to spend on a heatsink and fan.
I want this to cool well, quietness is also needed but good cooling is higher priority. Im also planning to buy a 3.5gram tube of Arctic silver5 (thats not included in the $50)

A friend showed me this:
http://www.pccasegear.com/prod1468.htm

It seems quite good on paper: copper, lots of fins, 5500rpm ball bearing fan. So lets start from there and see what we get.

Also i was thinking of the Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu

Whats your opinions?

Thanks in advance
Wayne

im worried about the zalman 7000b-cu running into my psu. on zalmans site it says that my mobo is fine for the heatsink as long as the psu doesnt get in the way.

What motherboard do you have?

I would get the Thermaltake Typhoon, it is the best cooler for the A64's, let alone an XP! http://www.frozencpu.com/cpu-tta-26.html

If it wasnt over 50 i would suggest my HSF which owns the Typhoon.

I have 2 Vantec Tornados mounted on it, loud yes, but very effective.
