I have a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop computer.  I want to know how to remove the side panel, so I can install a video card.  I also need to know what form factor the power supply is, I will also be upgrading it to.  Thanks in advance Paul

    The Dell Inspiron 660 Mini Tower can use generic standard ATX power supply units, with either a 24-pin or 20+4-pin main motherboard power connector, with or without the on/off switch.
