How might i go about installing my Geforce 8800 GTS in my inspiron 570 pc?

i haven't done this sort of thing before and am lost more than you could imagine. i believe i need a 6 pin pci e cable to plug into it but my PSU only has a small square cable with 4 pins. any ideas? please help.

    This is the stats of the dookhut special PSU that they put in your dell:

    You need a real PSU if you want to add anything to your dell. Almost anything on this page will work for you:

  2. @ festerovic is there something that you would recommend or would any of those be suitable for my needs?
  3. the ones on the list are teh brands I would recommend, and the wattage was picked 400-499 watts, which is sufficient for your build + the 8800. Also you could add corsair to the brand list too.
  4. I appreciate the help very much. Thanks a million.
