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?

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.

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

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.
