1. Way way more than enough. 

2. PCIe is not 2.0but the graphic cards will run none the less

3. Again this will be no issue. Your ps has more than enough power.

Mysonic,

 

 Did you ever put that GTX 280 in your XPS 420 w/ a 425 PSU? If so, how does it handle it?

The max u can put is GTX 260 .. not 280 or 9800 GX2.  here my to do list currently.

 

 

Getting 525w PSU from Dell. - The PSU is for Precision t3400  . then i will decide wheter to get 280 or 9800 GX2.Plus .. install a couple of FAN.. that a must
