The 500w one posted above would be fine, 400w would be pushing it and probably be underpowered.
Invisible, according to what ive red on this site the 8600 is no better than a 7600GT on DX9 games!? id go for a x1950 512mb or a 7950GT to be honest, they can both run pretty much all games on max settings.
And id get Windows xp, if you buy one now it should come with service pack 2 installed on the cd, but if it doesnt then you can download it for free via windows updates.
Vista is still too buggy and has issues with certain software/hardware, thats why i wouldnt bother with it yet.
