Default Don't laugh

EDIT: New shortened version!

I might get a E521 Dell. $500 for an x2 3800+ with 1g ddr2 533 memory, 160g hdd, dvd-rw, and the budget gfx card 7300LE which is within my price range. I want to put my x800xl in it but not sure if the psu will support it. So my questions are...

1. Will this 305W machine support a x800xl gfx card?

uuhh, I had some other ones but I forgot them.

Also note that I will not build a PC for the reasons that I deleted because my post was too long.
---------
edit again: oh yeah my other question was would the 7300LE run world of warcraft alright and how well would it do with bf2(with lowered settings of course)

Np, I can get it printed onto paper-back if you would to take it with you to read. I would recommend skipping that first paragraph though(its main purpose is to explain to anyone that might try to get me to build a computer why I am not going to do so and insteady buy a pre-built one).

[sarcasm] DELL OFFERS VIDEO CARDS WITH THEIR NON-XPS SYSTEMS!?!?!?!?

thats not too bad of a price, does it come with a moniter and everything?
Well idk about a 800XL but under a 800XT requirements it says it works with a 300W PSU, so i'm guessin it'll work, idk how many amps the dell PSU has and how many the 800XL need though.
