before you buy 8600gt check your PSU (power supply unit) has enough output to cope with the card, if not you will also have to buy one of those.
i don't think overheating should be a problem, the case fan should cope with any extra heat generated by the GPU. Just remember to clean case fan every now and again or it gets full of dust.
you can get an extra fan which fits onto one of the slots at the rear of the case but I've heard conflicting tales as to there cooling.

The card should come equipped with it's own fan assembly.

If you're not familiar with fitting a new video board, try to get someone who is to do it for you. If you get it wrong you can damage the new board and the computer so it's not worth taking the risk.
