Default Heat sink mounting bracket on motherboard?

Hi, after checking the temps on my second PC I noticed they were 10-15 degrees hotter. I opened my case and see that one of the plastic brackets that the heat sink snaps onto broke off, so the heat sink is not fastened tightly. This is a socket 478 P4. Can the bracket that attaches underneath the motherboard be replaced?

Also, if it can be replaced, would it be something I could maybe find locally at a CompUSA or something? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yeah! Thanks a bunch! Good to know it can be replaced and NOT for a ton of money.
