can i connect this to a fan controller (sunbeam rheobus) to dim it or does it need to connect to a switch/psu

Well, can your fan controller handle 900 volts?

can i get one from radioshack?

You need a CCFL inverter. Radioshack won't sell them, even if they did, it would be cheaper just to buy a CCFL kit off of newegg or something.

does it sell by itself or should i grab a ccfl kit and just use the inverter? cant seem to find a ccfl inverter by itself

worst case, it's safe to plug into my psu right?

I wouldn't do it. The element in the tube would look like a short to the DC supply and could blow it up (just a guess though). Plus the thing shouldn't start since you won't get a large voltage to ionize the gas in the tube. Just don't do it, not worth breaking something over buying a cheap kit.
