That's a pretty good cooler. I've heard good reviews on that one. But the best bang for your buck cooler is the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Can be had for $19.99 at svc.com:
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler for LGA775
It's a really good cooler for the money.

And if you want one of the best:
Newegg.com - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail

Actually it's a lot cheaper at petra's:

gofor the tuniq, its DEFINATELTY worth the money, especially w/ your VGU and 4gb of ram, you're probably bottlenecking a bit w/ a stock clocked cpu.

I love my tuniq that I just got last week... I barely have the fan turned up, maybe mid to low, and it cools just fine...
