Ahh, OK. I was under the impression you had the slim line. That's another story. You can use a standard sized card in that case. The HD 3650 will work fine. I've even heard of people running HD 4600 series cards with the Dell 300W PSU with great success.

That happens a lot. The origin is probably close to your house. you'll either get it before you get a shipping number or you will have to wait a day.

If you log into Newegg, click on my account and then the other number. You can click on the tracking link there.
