I'm finally interested in searching for a new graphics card. I've been searching around for a card that'll fit into the XPS420. I know there are numerous issues with the size of the tower of the XPS and of course the power supply needed.
The budge i'm look at is around £250. I've been looking at the Nvidia 460/470 and the ATI Radion 5870.
Basically, my real question to you guys is:
Having such a slim graphics card to start with, I can't really see how all the new cards such as 4.3 inches, are going to fit in the tower, as the MASSIVE fan is in the way. The length shouldn't be a problem, as i've got about 13 inches of space.
If anyone could give me any information on this, it would be fantastic.

A 5770 might work with current power but the 5870 would require a bigger PSU with 2 Aux power connectors for PCIE.

Yeah I think i've finally decided on a ATI 5870. I think I'll use this PSU.
It's a 650W Antec
Would that be a good enough quality one?
The minimum requirements are 500w for the 5870.
Yes. That PSU would be an excellent choice.
