Will this work with my Dell Precision T1500?

I'm looking to buy a new graphics card to handle BF3.  My PC can handle it, it's just my lousy video card.  Will this work with my computer?

Re: Will this work with my Dell Precision T1500?

The T1500 only has a 350W powersupply (see "setup and features tech sheet" available from<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>. That videocard recommends at least a 450W powersupply (see the downloadable manual from us.msi.com/.../N460GTX-M2D1GD5-OC2.html).

Dell powersupplies are generally pretty good (especially in the Precision line), but going 100W below the recommended Wattage is a stretch I think. I'd recommend to upgrade your powersupply or look for a lower wattage videocard (400W requirement is probably the max that your 350W powersupply can handle).

www.tigerdirect.com/.../item-details.asp Would this work?  IF it doesn't could you possible find one that can handle Battlefield 3 on the PC? Thanks a ton.  LOVE DELL.
