Is there a quick way to know if these cards will fit in my case?

I have to say a Genius reply had to chuckle for a minute nice one N00BER

In all seriousness though most cards come 10.5 to 12" long short card is a possible 8.5 to 9 " that would be the smallest you would find but probably wouldn't be all powerful though

I did walk into that one, didn't I. lol.

How are the EVGA 600B (600W) PSUs? Best Buy has it for 70, and the 270x on sale for 219. Yeah....kind of considering just going today instead of waiting to order. haha.

haha. EVGA is good. just make sure the PSU u get will fit your current mobo. and that it has 2 6-pin PCIe power connectors. IE mobo connector and cpu power connectors.

I think it does? If I'm reading this right, the PSU has a 20+4 pin and 2 6+2 pin PCIe cords.

It sounds like from Intel's site on the i7-900 series, the PSU should link up?

Power supplies must comply with the ATX12V 2.2 design guidelines (see the Form Factors Web site for details) and supply additional current on the 12V power rail through a 2x2 connector. The Intel® Core™ i7 Processor requires a minimum of 8 Amps continuous and 13 Amps peak for 10ms on 12V2. All Intel® Core™ i7 Processor-based systems require either the standard 2x10, 20-pin ATX power connector or the new 24-pin ATX power connecter as well as the 2x2, 4-pin 12V connector. Each motherboard/platform may have additional requirements based on graphics cards, TV tuners, ADD2+, HDD, ODD, chassis fans, etc. Consult the motherboard and system component documentation to determine additional power supply requirements. Intel tests power supplies to determine a minimum level of electrical compliance.

check to see if your mobo is a 4 pin cpu power connector or 8pin.

Shoot, I'm not sure. I'm at work, otherwise I'd have the case open already. I don't know if this answers it?

From Dell forums: "What power supply do you suggest I purchase to replace the existing one in my XPS 9000?

Most generic standard ATX power supply units can be installed, with either a 24-pin or 20+4-pin main motherboard power and EPS/ATX12V 8-pin connectors, with or without the on/off switch.

You should be able to buy a compatible power supply from either a local or online computer store.

Note: A power supply with five SATA power connectors, is needed."
