Looking to buy myself something for the holidays this year and i was looking at the EVGA GeForce GTX760. However I am not sure if my computer is compatible with this or not with the special motherboard dell uses for these computers, and I am a little bit clueless on how to find out. I currently have 12Gb's of RAM, a RAID harddrive setup, current graphics card is a Geforce GT530, along with a 430 Watt powersupply. I am also planning on upgrading the power supply.

Even if the motherboard is compatible, I'd be worried about that 430 watt power supply. Dell isn't known for using good quality power supplies. I'd expect an XPS system to have a higher-quality power supply than the average Dell system, but I wouldn't feel comfortable putting that to the test.
