you really dont need that much more power. corsair makes great power supplies, but i am not so sure on their gaming series. seems like a budget line that they get people to buy because of the blue leds.

heres more wattage for cheaper.
Newegg.com - Antec NEO ECO 620C 620W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
you will need to use your old power cable.

if you have a pc that this is replacing, then just pull the cord from that one. otherwise that one will work. whatever is cheapest, you cant really screw a power cord up.

Actually, just use the one from your dell.

Theyre all the same.
