Will This Power Supply fit in my xps 8300

I'm looking to upgrade my psu for my xps 8300 to put in a GTX 780 for better gaming performance.  Looking to replace the current 460 watt with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438017

Can anybody let me know if it will fit? I know people have said that dell's case specifications were kinda wonky. 

Thanks for any help!

I doubt it, it has been reported that it's better to buy a power supply for the XPS 8300 with a depth of around 5.9".

The EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 220-G2-0750-XR 750W ATX12V / EPS12V has a depth of 7.08".

You may have to remove the optical drives, Case and heatsink fan to shoehorn it in. The supernova is 3.34 x 5.91" x 7.08" (H x W x L)

As you can see with this Corsair TX850 Its a TIGHT FIT.

2 inches more means even less room.  I have also seen less than full length less than 8 inches optical drives that offset this issue.

5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 6.3"(L)

I upgraded my 8300 with a Cooler Master G750M. It fit perfectly and seems to be good quality.
