electric fans and a/c relays

There are so many out there and I am not sure where to start. I am installing new pulleys now and would like to change the fan/clutch out for an electric fan. I have a/c and would like to know what fan and relays would suit me best without overspending.
The Summit racing fan/shroud combo looked decent but I have absolutely no experience wiring electric fans to work with a/c systems. I mostly drive around town and use the a/c on a regular basis. I have a stock ZZ4 but I will be changing the cam this year. Any suggestions or recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

LOL, Al.
I have the older version of this fan: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLX-188/
It works great here in the desert. I looked for a while on eBay and found it substantially cheaper. IMO the best way to hook it up is using a spal 195 or 180 threaded temp sensor (also available on eBay or parts houses) and a couple of relays and switch at or under the dash. You can buy relay kits from http://www.madelectrical.com/catalog/rly-1.shtml that explain exactly how to wire it up and its all good quality stuff. If you have not already done it you may want to upgrade to a higher output alternator to run the electric fan.
