Can ATI 5850/5870 fit into XPS 8000/9000 system ?

hey guys, im not sure if ATI 5850/5870 can fit into DELL XPS 8000/9000 system, are those two models have enough space to expand for this video card?
BTW DELL only provide 475W power those system, it doesn't enough for support 5850/55870. So PS upgradeable?

  1. I assume that the XPS that you say is the 435 MT (9000), sorry but the GPU is more bigger that the case, this XPS is a MT (micro-tower).

    This can help a little. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/266008-30-what-mobo-dell-xps435-studio
  2. Yes, a 5870 Vapor-X fits nicely into the Studio XPS 8000 (could probably fit the 5970 its that open at the bottom of the case).

    I chose a Seasonic X-750 PSU to power the system, due to its efficiency and abilility to keep the noise down under load.

    Geeza
  3. I got a 5870 with my XPS 9000, and it fits just fine. The case is quite large.

    The PSU I was a little iffy on also, but the 5870 is rather conservative on it's power consumption. Also since your not really OC`ing a Dell system, you don't use any extra Watts that way
  4. The Dell Studio XPS is only rated 300watts , hence my power supply swapout. The model I bought is Gold+ rates - the fan only goes on when required, giving me a fairly quiet system, what with the i7-870 GPU which is energy efficient anyway.
  5. Yes it fits perfectly, I did on my XPS 8000 heres a picture http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/3521/08022011049custom.jpg
    I also bought a new Zalman 600HP PSU
