I've got 4 fans going in my apt at once sometimes. It really is ridiculous.
I goto an Asian place in Monterey Park. It's called Superco Home Theater&ap.
221 N. Atlantic Blvd. Monterey Park, CA 91754. They had one on sale for 50 bucks but it was sold out (and alittle too small). I got one for 100 bucks and it's pretty big. (Bigger than the one i saw at home depot), but if you can you should go for the Adobe Air brand, i heard that's the best brand out there.
