Most likely, I'd have to know the exact power consumption of the 8600gt.

As far as displaying it on a tv, if you use a standard TV (S-Video) it won't look very good. Especially for web browsing. The letters and words get very blurry and it hurts your eyes after awhile. I've also tried on a high def 65" (DVI) rear projection, a 42" DLP (S-video), and a 46" LCD (DVI)and I wasn't happy with intenet looks at all though the LCD was much much better than the 65". I've also hooked up to my home theatre projecter (DVI)in the basement displaying a 16' by 9' screen and it looks perfect. But the projector is made to hook up to a puter and supports higher resolutions. If you're playing a game or the flight sim it is very playable on all the tvs. Just as long as you don't mind it looking a little blurry. The resolution won't be there but it works.

EDIT: Added which connections I was using for each TV
