Default Question about CPU fans

Hey, I have decided to upgrade my PC to a higher supported socket (i'm working with 939 right now) so I am upgrading to socket AM2. I have a socket AM2+ motherboard on the way and a socket AM2 processor coming and I was wondering if I need to buy a new CPU fan (socket AM2?) as this processor does not come with one...or would my current fan fit it?

You would need a new CPU fan, that supports AM2. I would suggest:
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail

Which processor did you buy anyway?

Yup, you need a new HSF as the old one will not fit. The HSF that b1gapl suggested is a great one for its price.
