Looking to upgrade my XPS 8500 that currently has a GT 640. Do not wish to replace the stock PSU as I only need a marginal GPU upgrade.

What have you other XPS 8500 owners been able to install and run with the stock 460w PSU?

I wouldn't count on that psu actually delivering the advertised 460 watts.

I would. Dell power supplies are generally excellent. Here is a very good list to go by.

GTX 660 Ti or HD 7850 level cards are about what you would be looking at.
