XPS 710 Video Card Upgrade Suggestions

I have an XPS 710 with the nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX video card. I was thinking of upgrading the card to something more powerful.

My system has two 24" monitors and I use Graphic intensive design programs. (And also play a few games.)

I was looking at the nvidia 9000 and GTX 200 series.

Couple of questions:

1. Power supply: WIll the XPS 710 power supply handle these cards?

2. Cooling: Is the cooling of the XPS 710 sufficient?

3: Manufacturer: These cards are made by multiple Manufacturers. Which is best? Which to avoid?

4. Finally, which card / model and WHY?

Thanks,

John
