I just looked it up and the dell inspiron 530 has only a 250w PSU. Dells PSUs are quality though and an HD5570 would be a good choice. If your case is the "slim" version make sure to get one that is low profile;

If you are willing to spend a little more money, buy a new power supply and get a radeon 4850.

yes your board should have a pci-e slot, and yes its just like installing into an AGP slot on an older system. Your PCI-E slot will probably be offset a little bit from the PCI slots and be a different color.

you should have no problems installing it, just dont do something stupid like leave it plugged in with the PSU in the on position. My first foray into homebuilding/computer upgrades back in 1999 haunts me to this day. IF only I would have unplugged my computer before putting in that geforce 2!

With a dell 300watt PSU, you should be able to use a HD5670, which would be more powerful than the 5570, but either is probably OK for light gaming.

Yeah, you can go for the HD5670 if your PSU is actually 300w.
