    ok post the specs of the current computer for a start to solve the obvious compatability issue, pci-e or agp?

    what card is it that you currently have?

    How much do you want to spend?

    Why is it that you want to upgrade psu for?

    You need to check if the Dell actually has a PCI-E slot that you can put the card into.

    Im pretty sure that Dell have non-standard PSUs, so getting one to fit there is going to be difficult. It would probably be easier to get a different case and PSU.

    Clunk - they also have non-standard motherboards, which makes them a pain in the rear to upgrade.

    a quick lookup told me they have a 16x pci-e slot but the psu looks under powered for anything other than 7300 or a x1300 as it looks like it does not have a pci-e power connector
