Woah there! Did you say Cooler Master??? Is it the Extreme Power series? If yes, go change it if you can. It may blow up your PC anyday!
An 8600GT is a very hot card. But would definitely work with your config.

It will work good with everything.
I think you will be fine if your PSU is 400W.
You won't face any problems with 8600GT with 400W PSU.

The 8600GT will work fine. The PSU is fine for now, but cheap cooler masters are not the best. I would recommend getting a better PSU if you spend a good deal of time on that system.
