E6600 65W 5.4A
2GB DDR2 1 stick 10W 0.8A
X-Fi soundcard 10W 0.8A
2 HDD (10W each) 20W 1.6A
DVD drive 10W 0.8A

Total 9.4A

I found Geforce 8800GT used up to maximum of 105W on Nvidia site so that is 8.75A.

Your PC with Geforce 8800GT used 18.15A then if you upgrade to GTX 460 150W 12.5A and it will give 21.9A total ampage power.
