Bad fan on video card

My computer has Siluro GF4 T14200 OTES video card. I play no games so I am happy with this cards performance.

However, the fan has started to make a whirring/whistling noise.

I have 3 questions.

1. Can only the fan of the Thermal Exhaust System be replaced?
2 If not, is this card still available?
3. If neither #1 nor #2 are affirmative, then what card can I install to replace the one I have. My main criteria are that it installs easily, software, drivers, etc., are easily loaded and compatible with XP Home, and lastly cheap but reliable. Since I don't play any games, I don't need any more capability than what I now have.

Realistically the card's ancient (about six years old) therefore if the rest of the system's about the same age, then current graphics cards will probably be too modern for it. Unfortunately everything's faster now than that card.
