  1. I need to know how much you're willing to spend, and how many watts your PSU can supply.
  2. Best answer
    Heres a $57 XFX Radeon 4650, a very significant upgrade from your old 8500.
    If you're willing to spend more or less, again just let me know. Usually dells come with either 400-500 watt PSUs, so You are okay as the minimum is 400watts for this card:

    That would be higher end Dell's, the OP's D8400 came with a 350 watt / 28 amp psu w/ pcie power connector, still more than enough for a 4650.
  7. Installed and working well. Thanks.
