    yep. Those fans consume less than 4 watts.

    Yeah sure. Core 2 Duo just draws 65 watts. An 80mm fan consumes less than 5 watts. You would only need a bigger power supply if you install any of the monster graphics card.

    I also suggest a 500 watt. 500 watts is enough for most things. My computer uses 850 since my graphics card is the GTX 295. neither the 400 watt nor the 500 watt will give you much expansion room to upgrade. Go with the 500 watt you can easily find these less than 80 dollars at frys. Try to find one with 80 plus certification. Also look at the suggested wattage on the box. contact me for info

    Sure you can,but since you already have a 80mm fan why not install a 120mm exhaust fan in the rear

    You surely can. Your computer uses around 150W or less under load.

    it should be fine... attach it to the connector of the other fan.
