Dell Inspirion 530 Video Card Upgrade

Does anybody know if the new ATI Radeon HD 5770 and 5750 CrossFire Video Cards would fit in this case and work with the stock PSU? I have the slightly larger PSU that comes with the Q6600 and I have been waiting for a high-powered video card with low power requirements ... and either of these these look like they might be the ones. Anyone know for sure?

The HD 5750 will certainly fit.

The HD 5770 will likely have an issue with the HDD stick out. And the required 6 pin PCi-e power connector will certainly cause a headache.

larger psu doesn't mean reliable to your system...
And like viper said, 5750 is low power req than a 5770.

I have the same computer. IMO- go for the low power Nvdia 9800
this one for 99.00 bucks seems like the best deal

Are you concerned that there won't be sufficient power? It seems like there is sufficient power for the 5750 or 5770 ... but I'm no expect builder I'm just going by what others have said. Any other opinions on this?
