I wouldn't worry about psu dampening kits unless you really want to, mine doesn't vibrate at all, and now that I read it again I have that same exact psu

eh it's cheap, the one thing i'm worried about is the connect3d graphics card, i hate mail in rebates but it's so cheap, and i don't know about their reliability, but seeing how it's identical to the ati manufactured version i don't think there will be any problems

It looks like your trying to get this thing as quiet as possible.. I don't see any problems, but if you want dead silent.. who knows.. that video card could ruin that for ya.

Well i don't know, i'm just saying thats possible. My video card for example, when i'm not playing any games, it's very silent, I can't hear it. But the second I start a game up, the RPM just cranks up and the noise gets pretty loud.

ye, i don't think it's that big a deal, it'll be really quiet, and anyhow that deal on the graphics card is hard to beat, that performance for such a low price, i'm all over it. I'm about to purchase everything, hope it all works out as good as i want it too.
