Unfortunately the video slot is short.12 inch long cards do not physically go in nor do 10 inch long cards.

I use a Radeon R7 250E.

With the upgraded PSU and R7 260X should be fine as long as its a short card.

The Aux power comes from PCI-E power connections on the upgraded 650W power supply.  A plastic Ruler will tell you what does or does not fit.  More than 8.5 inches is likely not working 10 to 12 inches does not physically go in.  You can use a plastic Ruler to see this for yourself.  8.5 inches seems to be Max.

Short cards work fine.    That means you can use Single Fan Cards.

Not really a specific Dell question, since no long cards will fit in my 3847, but I want to put a long one

in my Lenovo, don't have an 8+6 power cable, (or a 500W ps) do the modular power supplies like Corsair

come with

all the necessary cables? The ads only seem to show the motherboard connections.

What type/wattage power supply do I need for the 750 ti? The 3847 has a 300 W supply with no extra power connectors.

Technically the onboard 300W supply should work.  However it would be requiring 100 percent capacity.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139061

 

EPS 12v 2.91  power supplies are required.  Meaning that they have 170W on the 3.3v/5v Rail,  15 to 25W on the +5VSB rail and minimum 375W on the 12V rail.

Minimum recommended supply is Corsair CS750M  based on these factors AND the Dimensions of the power supply.

CORSAIR CSM Series CS750M 750W

ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD

Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

5.9" x 3.39" x 5.51"

It looks like the same thing but the price tells me its a fake NOT MADE BY CORSAIR product.  There are other visual clues as to why they are fake but I'm not going to give that information away so that the counterfeit parts will Look more genuine.

http://www.corsair.com/en-us/enthusiast-series-modular-tx850m-80-plus-bronze-certified-750-watt-high...

That's also why corsair says on their site that they will not warranty Items that are labeled as corsair but not actually made by corsair.

http://www.corsair.com/en-us/support/warranty

 Also excluded from this warranty are counterfeit products; that is, products that Corsair, at its sole discretion, determines were not manufactured by Corsair or any of its authorized manufacturing partners.

$50 is a  (I AM FAKE BLOW UP YOUR MOTHERBOARD CATCH FIRE) price for this power supply.
