Hello, a friend of mine has bought a dell xps 8700 and wishes to upgrade his GPU to a 270x/280 I am wondering if he will need to upgrade his PSU (I assume so) and if his case will fit. He has a mini ATX mobo with pcie 2.0 x16 and an i7 4770, therefore his bottleneck would be the Nvidia 635.

The XFX TS Series 550w PSU will work great and should fit well.
