I guess I'll have to reply to myself.
After many attempts to make it work, I still tend to think my 8600GT
is just not compatible with MSI motherboard I have when working under
Fedora. The problem only appears when the card is installed to an MSI
motherboard _and_ only when running Fedora in graphical mode.

Any other cases like installing my video adapter to another
motherboard or putting a new video to MSI motherboard and running
Fedora on it - everything works flawlessly. Windows works just fine in
8600GT + MSI MB combo, too. But trying to run Fedora on this system
just kills the machine within seconds / minutes after switching to
graphical mode, no matter what video driver I use.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get any more details on what is going wrong
in this case.

Anyway, I'm likely to buy a passively-cooled Zotac GT240 now and that
would solve this issue.
