This is a better deal:

CORSAIR CX430 430W $25 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It has a 6+2-pin connector which can be used as a 6-pin.

Yes it will work, but I would not suggest buying it - that is a low grade psu.

I doubt that the original dell psu has a 6 pin. If you want to get a budget psu for a small gpu, get the Corsair CX430.

What gpu are you trying to run?

From what I've read the Dell Inspiron 660 can only fit a low-profile single-slot graphics card. If that's true, you can't put a GTX 650 in there, they are all too thick. :(

As long as you are not planning to go to a larger (faster) gpu, the CX430 will be fine and will work in your dell.

well i "accidentaly" already bought it and realised the problem. The card is plugged into my pc, and its powered off with all the cables out awaiting a new psu. When closing the case it fits the case but i might not fully understand you

All right, glad to hear that!

Can you measure your current PSU please and tell us the dimensions. I'm trying to confirm that the CX430 would fit in its place.

Whatever you prefer. We can convert inches to mm ourselves (1"=25.4mm)

Edit: the CX430 dimensions are 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 140mm(L).

There is more than one "type" of inspirion 660. Some of them are called "slimline" and have a narrow width form factor on the case. If you have that type, regular (full size) atx psu's are too wide to fit and most gpu's have the same problem. If you have a full height gpu (card same vertical size as the hold down bracket), you have an atx sized case.

i have the atx then i guess, heres the dimensions:
this might be a little confusing but i put the computer on its side. But if it were standing up in a tower position it would be:
Height: 8.5x14 cm

ATX power supplies are 15 cm wide, 8.6 cm high, and typically 14 cm long. The length can vary from brand to brand.

The CX 430 has exactly the typical dimensions above.

Your PSU has the same height and length. Now measure the width too. If it's 15 cm, then you're guaranteed that the CX430 will fit.

That's standard atx psu size. The CX430 will be fine.
