1) Can anyone please confirm if (Dell) 375W max power supply (PSU) works with eVGA e-GeForce 7600 GS 256MB PCI-Express 256-P2-N549-TR even the requirement is 400W?
2) Will GeForce 7600 has heat problem (Dell Dimension 9100)?
(I'm simply want to upgrade my system from integrated card to a decent one. Not into game.)

Yes. 375w psu has 30amps on the 12v. They come from the factory configured with 8800GTX's.http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim9100/en/SM/specs.htm#wp1053343
That's not your max (375). I run the 305w 22amps and a 8600gt, so 7600GS no sweat. 7600GT or 7900GS or GT if you want better, 7600GT for sure over the 7600GS.
