Which one would be the best bang for your buck. I currently only have $40 USD.

Bang for your buck. This heatsink I had on my 940 and could not have been happier. You'll need about another $10 but worth every penny.

For a lower price, the massive Scythe Mugen 2 will tell that cooler to eat it's dust.
But the real problem is your motherboard on this build. You shouldn't use ANY aftermarket cooling, as that would blow over the VRMs and therefore remove all cooling to the VRMs. Which on this motherboard are inadequate to begin with, it is a 3+1 phase and not even meant for 125W processors. You should stay on the stock cooler, avoid any OC, and begin looking for a replacement motherboard.
