Make sure the fan works is a good idea. Ideally you would want to run a benchmark for 12+ hours. Now depending on the circumstances how you're buying this there may not be a return policy. If a card wont run for 12 hours without failing then it's good. If the computer freezes and begins having issues then there could be a problem with the card.

The power supply wouldn't matter what he is using, as long as you're power supply can handle the new card. You would have to tell me your system specs if you wanted me to tell you if your computer could have the new card.
