You'll need a new power supply: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-500-Watt-Certified-Compat....

Whatever you do, don't buy a cheap branded power supply. Antec and ocz are also good brands and a great value.

The video card depends on your budget and choice of power supplies; here's one example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Doesn't Dell use BTX boards not ATX?

If I am correct (pretty sure I am) you cannot stick its guts into a normal case.

Edit:
I'm finding conflicting answers in some searches, some say they are BTX, some say they are micro ATX.

It should fit, but check the backplate on the dell case and see if you can use it on a new case. Some are built into the case and can't be removed.
