That card is fine on that PSU as it dosent need any extra power cables and gets all its power from the PCIE slot. Dell PSU's are good quality units as well so you have no worries.
Basically if it dosent need a PCIE cable its fine.
A HD 5670 would be about the best card that dosent need a power cable (Check this as Axle made a version that did) at that price range.

Mactronix :)

I would be a bit more cautious as these pci-e x16 slots usually don't support 2.1 cards especially since it is from a oem. The card probably won't work due to the face of how old the board is and little to no updates from dell for the board.

So, a Sapphire 5670 for a $75 card. What would your recommendations be for a ~$55 card?

Also, how can I tell if my PCIE supports 2.1 or not?

I would recommend you not even consider anything less at 1080p.

Ok, now the final question, will that card fit in my system properly and be able to stay cool? Also, do I have the proper slot for it?
Really appreciate the help guys. :)

Actually thats the cheapest 5670 I could find at newegg.Unfortunitly it only has 512mb of RAM which wouldn't be good if you plan on using a 1080p monitor.

You could get a 5570 for about $60 but you definitly won't be able to game with it.It's just a whole lot better than the on-board graphics.

Actually it looks like tigerdirect has a way better deal on a 5670.

XFX 5670 $75=$60 after MIR

Their is also a refurbished 5670 for cheaper if you wanted to check that out.

The 5670 should fit fine in your case without any problems.Although I do suggest you try to do some cable management.

I don't plan on playing games that are too graphically intense. And also, I don't want to play on max settings, I'd just like to play in HD with 60 FPS on about med-low settings. Right now I'm very into League Of Legends, and I play on completely bottomed out settings and in windowed mode and barely hold 30 FPS. It lags during intense team fights and sometimes crashes. =\

Well even at medium settings at 1080p you still won't be able to max out the game with a 5670.But the 5670 should get you to play on medium settings but i'm not sure about 60fps.Don't forget that the game depends on the CPU just as much as the GPU and that Athlon is aged quite a bit in the gaming world.
