    Well, I want to know what PSU's would work with a Dell XPS 8500 and that could support an EVGA GTX 760.
    I have a Intel i5 and 16gigs of Ram in the box aswell. My current card is the GTX 620 but I know that the case can fit a 9.5" card such as the 760
  3. This will tell you the recommended wattage. As for physical size: Measure your case. I have used a low-wattage Antec Power Supply before and it worked for a long time. Thermaltake makes nice PSUs for a lower price. I own one currently and it fits my super tall case just fine. Even if it is only semi-modular.
  4. Was there supposed to be a link there? And do you think this one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119) will work?

    That is a great power supply. Just go to this link for the calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    It goes into a little more detail on what wattage you need for your computer. Make sure to add on a few more features you want later like SLI and more hdds. Maybe even look at what it would be with a different CPU. You don't want to have to buy another one when you upgrade/add a different part.
  6. Also, the one you directed me to is modular. This is important if you want good cable management. Just make sure it has all of the cables and plugs that you might potentially use later.
