Have a look in your case , open it up and see there are 80mm 92mm and 120mm fans, The bigger the better !

BTW, I woul not buy any fan from best buy, if it is either made by adaptec or dynex, don't buy it, it will probably break in a short time. circuit city sells some antec fans, I beleive there is at least one lighted fan at circuit city, it may be less that the one you saw a BB. I have all antec 80mm(3 of em) and 1 antec 120mm in my case, they all have ran fine since the day i got em( i got the 80mm last summer).
you can also go here for a good assortment of fans:
