Your processor uses an AM2 socket so any Heatsink / Fan combo advertised as fitting this will be suitable as a replacement (as long as you check that your motherboard supports both 3 pin and 4 pin fan power connections - if not then make sure you get one to match).

If you want to leave the heatsink and replace the fan only then I'd suggest you manually measure the fan, note where the screw holes are then search online for a suitable replacement, making sure it has a suitable connector too.

Personally I'd just replace the whole lot and go for something like this. Note you will need some kind of solvent to clean the old Thermal Paste from the CPU when changing heatsinks.
