Power Supply for XPS 8300

Hello all!

A few years back I bought an XPS 8300 with a 560 Ti Graphics card. I have recently wanted to upgrade it in preparation for the newer games coming out, and I've run into problems with the PSU, namely how low the power is. I would want to upgrade it, but previous DELL PCs I had were not very user friendly in that regard.


So my question is this: I want to put in a Corsair CX 750 W PSU, and I was wondering if it would fit / work. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139040&Tpk=corsair%20cx%20750w&IsVirtualPar...). I am also open to other recommendations of PSUs in the same power range.

I would be grateful for any responses.

It might fit, but keep in mind that it must have a maximum length of 5.9 inches.

Rdunnill, after checking the link (I am not very familiar with inches or US/UK units at all), it says 5.9x3.4x6.3, and I presume it's length x width x height?

I'm not sure. I do know that the Seasonic 520-watt fits and it has the two PCIe connectors you'll need.
