Hey everyone! I have a XPS 8300 with a i7-2600 processor with 8Gb ram (4x2Gb) a 460 watt PSU and a radeon HD 6450. What I'm looking to replace is the graphics card and PSU and the case.
this is the PSU--- ENERMAX NAXN 82+ ENM750AWT 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply (the link wouldnt work so I just posted the actual name of the PSU.)

and this is the graphics card-- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Dell told me that I have a 24 pin connector to power the mobo just so you guys know. Do you think this will work? never really tinkered with a computer before so I'm a little cautious.

Unless you are going with three of the 6850 in crossfire you don't need a 750w psu the minimum requirement for one is 500w. So even with two 6850 in crossfire you would only need a 650w psu. So the question is are you going to eventually have two 6850's in crossfire or are you only going to have the one card,
If your going to have the one card then a 500w or 520w psu would be good.

If you want to go a little bigger then you could consider this one.

Both of these are modular and would be a nice feature to have with a side window case.
If you want to stay with the Eneermax then you can consider this one.

You don't need to upgrade the psu to be able to run that card

I would just paint your dell case military green and add a side window and then use the savings to get an even better GPU.
