Applications/Games you need it for 3. Power supply wattage 4. Intended budget we should be able to help you better once we know that stuff arunphilip December 1, 2011 2:12:29 AM Since your XPS 420 was ordered with the 9800 GT, it would have the 425W PSU. You can confirm this by removing the right-side case cover, the PSU has a sticker that states the wattage. I have the same PC, and I upgraded to an Asus Radeon HD 6850 (which is available online for $150 - $170), keeping the stock 425W PSU. This allows me to play COD:MW2 and COD:BO at 1920x1200 at the highest settings. COD:BO stutters occasionally, though other sites state that is due to the CPU. You can go in for higher performance cards, but that will warrant a replacement of your PSU. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
