Default Upgrading PSU and Video Card, Help Please

I have a Dell XPS 420 and I'm looking to upgrade the PSU and Video Card instead of buying a whole new setup..so I was wondering if these 2 that I have in mind are good or even compatible with what I have.

Video Card:
Newegg.com - MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Newegg.com - Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Continuous Power Supply

I'm not home at the moment so I can't give you my direct specs but I think I found a review of it with the right ones:
Dell XPS 420 Desktop Computer Specs | PCWorld

Only thing I have different is..
3GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 9800GTX

Thank you, Adam.

Just do some measuring inside the case to make sure everything will fit.
