I am using the Asus EAH6850 DirectCu.

400cx should not have problem to handle stock x4 and 6850. I don't understand why the rig draws 37a/444w in this case.

Thanks, I think it may have to do with having 2 hard drives and 2 dvd drives. Do you think this could be the case?

yup i did, if i move my HDD over there is room.

im really thinking of buying the 460 instead. it saves me enough cash to buy a monitor, too.

that is a really good price on a 460gtx...but those suck more power than a 6850. I reckon you'll be cpu bottlenecked with either card.

I could tell the size from images. You do need to measures before getting them, the psu in your link is 3.4" x 5.9" x 6.1" . And that gpu, good price, it is 10.24" x 4.84 as shown above, make sure the sata ports and others don't blocks it. Agai, your cpu is E7200, and in most cases, you can't oc it on dell board so these needs to be factored in.

My bad, it is e7300, again, if you still use 19" lcd, do need to think about it before the upgrade.
