A bit confused here. Are you talking of case placement? What matters most is fitting a card inside the case -or at least, the card to the motherboard.

Use the Silverstone. The Dell PSU is way too limiting.

All PCIE-E x16 cards are backwards compatible. Chipset does not come into it. For example, you could run a PCI-E x 3.0 GPU in your slot and it will work. They simply won't work at "full" capabilities. They will be limited to the motherboards slot speed.

If a 550ti/560ti can physically can fit into your case - then yes you can run one (provided you use the Silverstone PSU. The dell generic just isn't up to the job).
