    well if it's still under warranty then that's a different matter all together but I'd still atleast give it a clean on the outside and maybe a blow out with compressed air If I was to have that come back to me full of dust then I'd void the warranty and not replace it

    maybe whilst the old PSU is out would be a good time to clean out the entire PC before putting in the new one

    Damn DDD it looks like a hobo puked on your case, then licked it off, then puked on it again, then pissed it off, then slept in it.

    Neat!
    I'm thinking of doing something similar so that I can plug a sub-woofer to my computer.
    2.1 sound FTW! (Even if it's crappy, lol :p)

    That's cool, but don't those speakers need to be powered by the main unit? I doubt it will give any good volume being fed by the 3.5mm jack.

    thats why home theater uses amplifier. the player just to give speaker sound signal and amplifier boost it.

    no you see, i am feeding the 3.5 into the main unit. im feeding it to the auxillary port which unfortunately is in phonos. the aux port was originally for turntables. :p

    you may find the output from your sound card is to high for the Phono in turntables only use a very small mW (20~50) output where as the average speaker out on a PC is 100mW
