Dell Studio XPS 8100 - Choosing new graphic card

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

XPS 8100 graphics card died; ATI Radeon 5450 1GB. Can I replace with Nvidia GT440 1.5GB without upgrading PSU? Really hope to avoid that, if possible; GT440 is what was available. Thanks much for the input!

It should be okay.
I'd get a better card for the same price though.

It's better than the GT440 and doesn't cost too much either. About $55 after rebate.
Your PSU can handle it too.

Oh and,
