Unfortunately s stated above most Dells have their own PSU's made so you have to make sure your case will accommodate a ATX power supply.
They do this so your limited to what you can upgrade and force you to go to them to get any upgradeable parts.

I helped a friend install a new PSU on his HP :insert model here: a couple of weeks ago, and his case didn't support ATX's PSU's.

Your best bet would be to contact Dell directly.

They have some sort of chat support service IIRC.

I'm not dead certain of this, but I believe that a 580s (slimline) does not use a standard PSU. It appears to be significantly smaller.

Sorry.
