I currently have a Dell XPS 410 with a few upgrades(Intel Q6600 CPU, OCZ Vertex 2, 4GB RAM) and am going to upgrade the video card to a Galaxy GTX 460 and need a new power supply to do so. I don't really know much about power supplies which is why I am asking what will fit into my computer/work well with new video card. Probably looking to get a 600w or so. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Dell has been known to use odd PSUs. You might want to check at PC Power and Cooling as they sell PSUs specifically to fit Dell PCs.

Really? Hmm, I was hoping to get a Corsair of some kind.

You can use any standard ATX power supply, preferably something with 34 or more amps on the 12v rail.

I've benched a C2D 410 with an Asus ENGTX460 TOP and the 375w/30a Dell psu ( around 310 watts from the wall running Furmark )

So I could use either of these and they would fit/work in my system?

Thanks by the way and if these aren't good PSU's and you have a suggestion on a good power supply it would be much appreciated.

The TX650v2 is a superior psu to the gaming series imho.
Both are solid PSU's but i'd usually take TX over GS and CX models if i can.

You might want to also look at the XFX units.

So then the 650w TX would fit into my Dell XPS 410? I would be more than happy to get that PSU.
