I also have a dell optiplex 755 computer. I am looking to upgrade the graphics card and psu. What things do I need to know before doing this.

I own the OptiPlex 745 tower, I recently upgraded the video card from the stock ati x1300 to a Radio HD 6670 2 gb ddr3, when the card arrived I tried putting it in, but there are big transistors right next to the pci-e slot and the card wouldn't go in unless I took the fan slightly off and then placed it on the card after inserting it. So once that hassle was over with, I turned on my computer and loaded up a game, at which time my computer shut down. I went to best buy and purchased a 400 watt power supply to replace the stock one, and I've been running smooth ever since.

TLDR, if you have the OptiPlex 745 tower and you want to replace the video card, get a low profile one, or one without a big fan and replace the crappy psu.
