Default purchasing new Heatsink

Im purchasing a new heatsing for my sempron 2500+. I currently have it clocked at its stock freq of 1750Mhz. I plan to overclock this cpu but my current heatsink is crap. The cpu is idling at 48*C.
I am thinking about purchasing the Thermaltake Volcano 12 heatsink. Is this a good choice? I perferably would like to stay within the range of $50 - $60 canadian. give or take a few.

They are good. I got one.

Mind you, you might want to remove the stock fan grill from it as it can produce a lot of noise.

The only other problem where is that the Volcano Series for Skt A has been discontinued. So you might want to make a purcase quickly.
