Default 250W PSU w/ video card

Will my 250W PSU support this video card?

Newegg.com - ZOGIS ZO68XT-DAGP GeForce 6800XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 8X Video Card - Retail

I have the following already:
MSI PM8M-V Mobo (w/ onboard LAN and audio)
WD 80Gig HD
Pentium 4 2.8GHz
CD-ROM and DVD/RW drives
1Gig of RAM
1X90mm fan

I haven't had any problems of overheating. Just wondering cuz I really want this video card. Thanks!!!

I'm guessing it could work, but you're cutting it close with that PSU. I could be wrong.

PSUs are cheap:
Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN, RoHS, 12cm FAN, version 2.2, 2 SATA, 20+ 4 pin, PCI Express, 400W Power Supply - Retail

Will the PSU you suggested fit into my DELL Dimension 4600 case?

Not sure, since Dell parts are proprietary.

Thanks for the help, but I have one last question about cooling. My computer currently only has one 90mm fan at the rear of the case. With the new 3D card, do you think I should add one at the front as well?

Of course. Having a front intake and rear exhaust, is ideal for airflow.
