Alright, cool. Thanks a lot guys. I'll probably call DeLL and check to be sure. I don't even know where I'd find the PSU label on the inside.

Open the case, look at the upper left-hand corner of your pc case, and look around for some box, some rectangular box, one like this:
and look for a label that says something like this: 350W or something along those lines.

yeah it looks like that one but not all neon colored. if it is only a 350 watt PSU it is highly recommended that you get a 400 watt and up to run a 6600 and 6800. but take it from me, replacing a PSU with Dell's is really weird. i had to rip the metal to get the plug area in and i dont think it will be any different with yours. ill take a picture in a second.

Alright cool, thanks.

I hope I don't have to replace the PSU on the DeLL just for the video card. That'd be a pain.

Here's the power listed on the DeLL website for her model:

Input Voltage: 100 to 120 V at 60Hz, 200 to 240V at 50Hz
Output Wattage: 305W maximum continuous
Heat Dissipation: 560.5 BTU/hour
Backup Battery: 3.0 V CR2032 coin cell

That's not nearly enough, huh? The PSU only puts out 305 watts. That seems way too little, even for the base specs of the system. Do we maybe overestimate wattage here by a good deal?

You will need a new PSU 305 watts its to low the 6600 series needs at least 350watt PSU
