Are you sure about the PSU? 120W sounds really low.

Based on the case you can choose from any PCIe video card on the marked.

It looks like it will fit any of the shelve PSU. I would go for 650W which should support any video card in the <= 250 price range.

5850 beats a 460... and the 5830 is about on par with a 460

Depending on the game being used the 5850 loses out to the 460 on occasion and regardless of game used the 5830 doesn't even deserve a mention.
Two games where ATi should have an advantage:-

The service manual on dell's site says 120W. I know that is very low for pc i just bought last week.

Are you sure about any PCIe fitting. Cupid show's the slot as 1.0

I was told some dell's PSU need a special clip on the PSU. If not used the cpu slows down and the motherboard's battery won't charge. IDK if mine has it or not.

I really want to make sure this things ready for GW2. I already play GW and City of heroes. Both games on recommended settings really heat up the integrated gpu.
