I'm guessing about 2 watts max on startup (at 0-100 rpm) with the Fanmate turned up to maximum. At minimum, you can expect the power draw to be less than 1 watt for both fans combined. You could add more to that Fanmate and still be safe...as long as power draw is less or equal to .50 amp / 6 watts...

I really think 2GB RAM is overrated even for people who think they need it. Run good low memory AV (Kaspersky), manually run your scans, stop unnecessary tray icons, kill services you don't need, etc. You're better off with 1GB low latency DDR800 RAM IMO. 8) dude, av plus anti spyware, plus a coupl...

As far as i know there is no "contract", it just so happens that seasonic makes thew most quiet PSUs.

personally id recomend the antec tri-cools, I have one set on low, I think it spins @ around 1500rpm, pretty quiet, not gonna be a silent solution, like a nexus on 7v, but still, has the bling and is actually decent.

You might be able to use a VF900 passive on it, most 7600GS cards have a pretty small stock heatsink that runs passive.
