I have a Dell Optiplex 3020 MT (i5 4590) . I have installed GTX750 ti which I have been using for over a year. I was thinking of upgrading the graphics card to a GTX1060 which requires additional power and the stock PSU isnt powerful enough.

I was thinking of upgrading the stock PSU to Rosewill Hive Series 750W Modular ( Link: https://www.newegg.com/global/ae-en/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182133&ignorebbr=1 )

1) My concern is regarding whether the PSU would fit the case.

2) My other concern is regarding the connector to the motherboard. Since Dell doesn't use a conventional pin I've read that a 24 pin to 8 pin connector is required for a standard PSU but since this is a modular PSU would I still be need that connector.


Hope you guys can help me!
Thanks in advance! :)

The majority of ATX PSUs will fit, exceptions being models that are longer than usual(really high power units with 850W+).
The Corsair TX650M is at a really good price right now and will fit the case. It's also much a much better quality unit than the ones you've posted.

You'll still need a 24 pin to 8 pin adapter for your motherboard.
