nvidia proprietary dell mobo
1000w psu

No, that will be just fine. And a 1000w PSU? Good lord. 70% of that won't ever even be used lol

i personally hate that computer as no standard mobo will fit in it. i think the 1000w psu used to get a bit of a workout due to the fact it originally had a gtx 280 installed

No, the 280 still would only pull about a total of 350-400w at 100% load...

But anyway, the 670 won't be bottlenecked by it at all :)
