Unhappy Busted 3DS XL help

Let me start off by saying I'm a major procrastinator. About a year ago, a friend of mine snatched at my bag and caused my 3DSXL to fly out of it and slam onto the ground. It was cracked with a large black ink blot on the screen. I have recently been getting over-hyped due to all the amazing new games and desire to finish my old ones. To get this replaced (out of warranty obvi) will be ~ $125. A new 3DSXL is $130, and since it's so similar and i am rather tech savvy i would like to replace the screen myself. I see this as the best fix, but there are so many TOP SCREENS (shoulda specified this earlier) available that I don't know which is trustworthy. If any of you guys have experienced what I am/have, then I would appreciate you pointing me in the right direction!

I'm not really sure what/where you're looking for top screens and why you're bothering to try and fix this old 3DS when buying a new 3DS will be a lot less of a hassle.
