Default CPU Cooler

In everyones opinion, what seems to be the most decent cpu cooler for a p4? I'm needing on in the price range of $1-50. What does everyone think would be a good buy?

whatever you get check the cfm (cubic feet per minute) air displacement of the fan and get a copper heatsink. I have AeroCool Extreme and got it for $30 which keeps my oc'd 2.4 (to 2.8) at an idle temp of 34c and 50c under an extreme load for 2-3 hours.

*edit* something I forgot to add, make sure the cfm is greater than 36.

So your tower never accidentaly gets knocked or goes to LAN partys?

*edit* And with the size of it, you could hang things off it
