Getting one from a junkyard is ok as long as you check it thoroughly. First, look for any obvious damage. Look at the cooling fins and the tanks. A good indication that the radiator will be ok is if it's full and the coolant is still green. If the coolant is brown, this can indicate neglect and possible buildup in the radiator.
Whats wrong with your current radiator? If you get one from a salvage yard, you should have it pressure checked and flushed at a radiatory shop anyway. If you're going to pay for that you might as well have them repair the one thats currently in your car. You already own that one. Unless of course yours is so far gone it can't be repaired.
