No need to apologize, just a thought that more people could offer you assistance this way

Like Jmke said it is always better to leave the slot below the graphic card empty. By the way, silent heatpipe is good only if you have excellent case ventilation. If you plan on overclocking, graphic card with fan will surely be more quiet than the Prescott HSF specially in a mini case to keep the CPU temp under "control".

If my case is poorly ventilated (it isn't great), is the fan on the x800gto still much of a benefit if I intend to overclock?

That's anyone's guess Overclocking is not a gurantee. A willing GPU or CPU does not leak much heat; an unwlling one can do not much even you put in sub-zero temp, which is always my take

A guru is just a plain guy without good products

I found out that my psu is 350w and that im not supposed to use a graphics card that runs higher than 75w in my pci-e slot!

Do you guys know if most graphics cards comply to this 75w limit for the pci-e slot?

Also, I couldn't get any specific power info on the x800 but apparently the new geforce 7800s require at least a 350w psu so I presume a more humble x800gto will be fine on my setup, right?

A 350W PSU does not provide an abundance of power nowadays. I think you'll be able to pull a X800GTO is you have a brandname 350W PSU, but not much more.

I'm lookin at the connect3d model now which has a decent sucess rate of modding to 16pipelines.

Do you reckon the psu is "brandname" if it is just the standard psu that came with the dell dimension 8400 about about 8 months ago?
