Can i just switch out my power supply?

Right now i have a dell precision t3500. This computer has 525w of power. I would like to upgrade the power supply but im not sure if i have to worry about anything before i upgrade to more power. The reason for this is because i would like to have 3 graphics cards the take up about 85 watts each
