Default Few Questions

Hey, in a few weeks, I will be getting some pc upgrades. I will get a headset, mouse, and a video card.

I will get an evga 6600 or a 6600gt. I currently have a 400 watt power suppy, would I need a new one to support this card?

Also, I am looking into getting a new pc game. But I can't decide which one. My choices are...
World of Warcraft
Huxley (the trailer[sp?] for this was sooo godly, it gave WOW a run for its money IMO)
Elder Scrolls oblivion (what makes me skeptical about this game is that it has no multiplayer or online capabilites)

Which one should I get? Other suggestions would be great! (please dont say FEAR, HL2, or COD2)

Thanx!

Halo is ace!

I would always go with a 500w PSU, then you are certain it will support ev everything, right down to the last little neon, they're only 30 quid...
