Two ways of doing this. The first link is if you use a non-Dell PSU like an  EVGA. The second link is a forum post swapping the 460W for the 850W.

fitting the Dell 850 is very easy, just keep not of the cables.  the 850 cables plug in to the supply so fit them to the board first, route them as original and plug them into the power supply last.  take your time and it should wortk out fine.  the hardest part is actually find the dell 850 w supply.
