    Your Enermax is a quality PSU. Although its quite old, If you are not overclocking it should be good enough for your system.

    No harm if you buy a new PSU, if you could afford one. Will be good for future upgrades.

    They had a FX-55 + 6800 GT running at 270W. You 6600GT and 3000+ is slower, so the power draw will be even lower.

    But....the 6600GT will be quite a bit faster from what i understand and can be faster than a 6800 standard

    The reason you didn't get a quick responce was that most forum mebers are in the UK and you posted a 5AM
