hard drives only pull about 15W at most, if your arent having power problems now adding another hard drive isnt going to push you over the limit.

Absolutely. You could add 5 more without a problem if you wanted.

Agreed...most HDDs only pull a max of 15w...I believe the readouts on the "green" drives is under 10w. You should be good to add plenty of storage.

Stopping the fan for a few seconds wont hurt the graphics card, its not going to heat up too quickly during those 5 seconds.

Hard to keep it out entirely, but putting dust filters on the intake fans can make a big difference. If you dont want to buy dust filters you can make some of your own.
