dude u dont need to drop a dual core, get an AMD X2 3800+ and an Antec SmartPower 500watt, it has 17+19 amps, which is 36, and it has more than enough power to take on ur CPU and Video card and its like $60.

the current power supply i have, the fan isnt even moving... hmm maybe dell turns it off to make you think you have a slient computer...

well does an atx power supply fit in a btx case?

Off Topic: My stock fan plugs into a 5pin connector on the motherboard which i cannot control the fan at all, arent fans usually 3pins?
