The new one from gigabyte http://www.obengware.com/uji/gigabyteghpcu21-vg.htm would be awesome, but I don't think it's out on shelves yet (that I know of).

I've never owned an AMD, but here are some heatsink reviews you can take a look at;

I believe that Thermalright and Thermaltake make some really good H/S's for AMD's

I have a Thermaltake volcano11+ Xaser. heatsink on my 2500XP and Iam overclocked to 2.2Ghz for now. Max temps with Seti@home and Folding@home,and CPU Burnin all 3 running for 8 hours was 43c with the fan set around 3/4 cause at full out the sucker sounds like a hairdryer but it will cool your CPU
