There's multiple fans you will have, a fan on the processor, that is guranteed. Probably one on your graphics card. You'll also have one on the power supply. And most likely at least two case fans. The case fans are cheap and easy to install, the others are not that hard either. I never changed a PSU fan though and there's a good chance you can't.

This is the one I picked up:

Some PC's have the outlet of the power supply's fan blowing on the processor. My old Gateway 2000 had one in the power supply and one for the processor. The processor fan was on the way out when I bought the PC, I replaced it.

No fans on the graphics cards here, I guess they are too basic to generate much heat (Intel 82845G on this one).

If windows is pi$$ing you off, try the live disk of Ubuntu.
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop

(I actually prefer the Xubuntu flavor. more plain jane desktop. Kubuntu has all the bells and whistles and is real nice too.)
This will let you try out Ubuntu Linux without installing anything to your HDD. It typically runs slower because the entire OS is loaded to RAM on the live disk.

You can download the disk image to burn a CD, or order a disk for free (slow shipping) if you're on dialup.
