GeForce GTS 450 and Dell XPS 435MT

I have a Dell XPS 435MT mini tower and would like to upgrade my GPU to a new eVGA Nvidia GTS 450 card. My PSU says 360 watt, but this card recommends 400 watt. The card is 6 pin and my PSU has one 6 pin.

1. Will this card fit in the Dell XPS 435MT
2. Is the PSU okay or should I upgrade it too? If so, what PSU should I upgrade it too?

Thanks.

    I have a XPS 435MT with I7-920 2.67G as well! I just upgraded it last weekend with a Corsair 750 HX modular cabling system power supply ($128 after rebate) (note: I do not want unneeded cables inside the PC to slow down airflow and ventilation). I've also put in a new Sapphire HD 6870 graphic card (better than GTS 450, $169.99 after rebate). Both new upgrades work beautifully for me! You can upgrade your XPS 435MT and make it a PC with the latest technologies. You may see my product reviews and XPS 435MT upgrade instructions at Amazon.com
