You should be fine if it's a decent enough supply, but why do you have such a weak PSU?

You can pretty much run anything that doesn't require external power. I think the 9500 GT is the highest Nvidia offers, although the 9600 Green Edition and GT 130 will be out soon

Q: What are the power requirements for the GeForce 8400 GS GPU?
A: GeForce 8400 GS cards have a maximum power draw of 71 watts.
No way a 8400GS will hit 71w though... the TDP on is 40w and probably uses less in the real world...

Definitely not. It gets all the power from the PCIe slot.
