Default Another fan

Hey guys, after being helped so well with locating a very great graphics card for my system, all I need now is a second fan, as my current one just barely cuts it with my current hardware and my computer overheats alot.

I imagine, many newer cards already come with fans but I'm still looking to put one on the rear of the chassis.

There's two pictures of the inside of my computer. (I've already dusted, don't worry)
I'm looking to put a fan (as, there's a spot for it, but it wasn't sold with one for some reason) on the back, it has screwholes and what not but is there any way to determine the size of the fan and the type I'd need to buy other than just measuring?

And with that, would I need a fan that plugs into my PSU, since I can't find any other spots on my motherboard.

I also find that my current fan gets very noisy when I play intensive games, the computer itself was bought in 2006 and the room it's located in often as a temperature in the mid 70s, sometimes into the 80s on hot days, should I replace it?

based upon pic number one it looks like a 120mm to me.

That is the width of the fan. You can measure from hole to hole and it should be a bit shorter than 120mm.
