General£1000 for a cooling fan? WTF! Pin

The cooling fan in the PSU of my desktop PC has gone on the fritz, causing the PC to shut down as the PSU overheats. Being a tinkerer and tending towards the green side, I thought I'd buy and fit a replacement 40mm fan from eBay, rather than shelling out for a whole new PSU. (Yes, I know there are some serious capacitors in PSU's - I'll wear rubber gloves)

I found some from China at £1 or less, with free postage. I don't know how they can make money on these, but that's their problem, but I have splashed out £1.75 to get one from the UK

I also found this one[^] - £999.85, though they do offer free postage as well. At that price I would want it personally delivered by a scantily clad maiden!
