The link for the PC is broken...

We got the XFX - ATI Radeon HD 5570 1GB graphics card.

Ok. If it has a spare PCI Express slot on the motherboard then your good to go with the HD 5570.

Yes, it would fit, but I think you'll need a power supply with more wattage to run it properly.

It's easy to replace the PSU. Unplug it's connections from the motherboard, HD, etc, and remove the 4 screws. Pop the new PSU in, 4 screws and connect it up.

ATI recommends at least 400W for the 5570. The Dell has a 300W power supply.

This is a nice one at a good price: Rosewill RD400-2-DB 400W
