I have the exact same model Dell as you do, so it's your lucky day. Anyway tell me more about your PC, did you up the PSU to something higher?

i ran the 9600GT off that exact same PSU using a power adapter
ATI also offers the 5670 which uses less power with similar performance

Actually I uped the PSU to an EarthWatts 650, but it's overkill since you can't stuff anything higher than the Visiontek Radeon HD 5770, which uses less than that. Mele sure the card has a single slot backplate. Galaxy showcased a single slot Geforce 470 over on Anandtech but that would definately mean an upgraded PSU and a increased chance of frying the card.

Any suggestions? I want to try and get one between today and tomorrow. Just a plug and play card. The game I play is Street legal racing redline
