You could try a minimal Debian Linux install with GeeXboX uShare .

Well my question was, is the difference in amperage going to make a difference to the newer computer parts. I am not planning to replace it just for the sake of replacing it. A 430w Seasonic S-12 is perfectly capable of powering your proposed computer, really the only thing that might be annoying a...

Inno3D sells a 8600gts with a Accelero S2 preinstalled and a 8600gt with a S1 installed so I think you will most likely be fine.

Oh and my vote for thermal compound is use the stuff included with the heatsink. (It's free.)

You could try removing the pci cover on the slot below your card, it might help with VRM cooling as a negative pressure case should end up using it as a intake of sorts. And that is also how the Accelero S1 that ships as a stock cooler on a x1950pro works, thats gotta count for something.

Why not consider the 300w FSP green PS or the Antec Earth watts, you can usually use molex to sata adapters as long as you do not need to hot swap hard drives. (There is also a 400w version of the FSP, just Newegg no longer sells it.)
