Upgrading GPU on Dell Studio XPS 435T

I'd like to upgrade the GPU on my Dell Studio XPS 435T desktop. Current specs:

Intel Core i7-950 processor (8MB L3 Cache3.06GHz)
9GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1066MHz
1024MB ATI Radeon HD 4870 GDDR5
475 watt PSU

Looking to play latest games at max settings on 1920 x 1080, 24" monitor with high FPS. I'd like to get another 2-3 years out of the computer before I purchase a new one. I'm looking into picking up a 27" or 30" monitor in the future so would like to be able to run display at 2560 x 1440 with good FPS. Budget ~$500 give or take.

Is it worth upgrading the GPU without also upgrading the PSU or can I get a nice card that will perform without any other upgrades? Which NVidia or Radeon GPUs should I be looking at?

Thanks in advance.

I just updated mine with a GTX 660 ti from an ATI 5770 and i can run everything at 60fps on 1920x1080. Didn't upgrade anything else, everything is stock.

Do you have the small form case?
How did that GTX 660 ti fit in this small case?
