You do not have any computer stores close to you?

How are you getting the video card?

I noticed you linked the the canadian tigerdirect.ca, where are you located that you can find a video card but not a psu? It looks like the computer will take a standard psu without issue, no proprietary psu limitations in this one.

If for some reason you like tigerdirect.ca then the Corsair 450vx is an excellent quality power supply, one of if not the best 400-500watt PSU. I have two that run 24/7 in the house and have had a single 450 power a OC'd dual core, single HDD, DVDRW, 2GB ram, and SLI 8800gt's running no problem, so carries a good kick to it:

Alright but how positive are you that this is going to work? I blew all of my money on the card and now i have to rely on my parents...(50 and still living at home..jk jk) and if this doesnt work then.

What has your research told you? Did you find out what type of PSU your computer uses? Were you able to read any of the threads in the link I provided? The corsair linked above is an excellent PSU and is standard ATX.

We can make recommendations for you but ultimately it is your responsibility to research a purchase properly.

What he said....we can give advise but you're the one with the computer. You want to be 100% sure, here is Dell.ca technical support:

Dell Contact Technical Support

Give them a call/chat/email to confirm the Inspiron's psu is not proprietary but they will probably try and get you to pick up the:
