Dell uses standard PSU's. Recently upgraded an E510 with a Hiper 580, good fit except for the fan guard, which was removed with four screws. Ran a 7950GT and had to add a Zalman 900 GPU fan and a small case fan to compensate for the poor air flow in the Dell case.
I know they did in their older models. I think they stopped doing that though. Worst case scenario: you go to PCP&C's website. They make PSUs that fit in Dell cases no matter what the model. They are a little expensive though.
