No, it's not. The processor will consume about 100, the card itself consuming around 150-270watts. If your total +12v wattage isn't above 265, I wouldn't do it.

No. Just buy a decent unit like a 550w Antec and then you can go on with out any issues.

Nope. The GTX 460 consumes roughly 141w of power from the 12v rail. That's nearly half the maximum power your PSU is capable of delivering on the 12v rail. There are other things that draws power from the 12v rail like the CPU, various drives and fans.

Without knowing the rest of your system, the best performing video card I would recommend is the HD 5750 which consumes about 51w of power. If it was at least a good quality PSU, then maybe the HD 5770 which consumes roughly 79w of power.

The new Dell XPX 8100, 17 860, has a GTX460 card with a 350watt psu ,so maybe it would work...

If an OEM computer comes with a OEM graphics card that graphics card is usually tweaked to work on a lower end PSU.

Regardless, the OP should just upgrade to a decent brand 450watt PSU. Corsair, Seasonic, newer Antec/newer OCZ, PC Power and Cooling, Tangen, XFX.

Dell PSU's normally output more power then regular generic units.
