Default Powersupply, on a dell; able to handle this?

The card that im getting
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102657

Exact same card, with the specs on the page, OEM version.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102656



So i have a dell 9100, and i have NO idea how to tell the power of my power supply unit. So does anyone know how i can tell that. And how much does his card need to use?

Just look on the powersupply you have. It should tell you the Wattage on it. If not, then just buy a new one. Or I can donate a 430W PSU to you.

Yea, just open it up and look at the psu, it'll say on it what it is. That is a nice card, and will do a whole lot more once you unlock the extra 4 pipelines and overclock it.

Well we already solved this problem on AIM. It's a 375W PSU. Should be enough. But I'm thinking of sending him my old 430W PSU to give him some breathign room.
