electric radiator fan took a crap

So my recently purchased 66 w/289 had a very cheap (found the same one on-line for $26.99) 12" electric fan on the radiator, only had this car a few weeks so I don't know if the fan was ever up to the requirements of keeping the pony's engine cool (don't think it was) but it now doesn't work at all. So my question is get a good electric fan or go with a 5 or 6 blade fan and shroud. Thoughts or opinions?

I upgraded to a quality electric fan and shroud in my 67, and couldn't be happier. The trick with electric fans is usually clearance with the water pump pulley though, so measure carefully or consider a two fan setup instead.
